“Sergio has left a mark on the community as the founder of the organizing committee for patriotic celebrations in Omaha, Nebraska, practically since the Independence Day festivities began at Plaza de la Raza,” said the head of mission.

This annual recognition is given to Mexican nationals living outside the country, “who have resided for at least the last 5 years continuously abroad and demonstrate an outstanding career in any field of human endeavor, different from the community field,” according to the award guidelines.

In this regard, Robles Maya was recognized as a “Mexicano Distinguido” for promoting the health and well-being of the Latin community, especially in tobacco use prevention. His tireless work in collaboration with various organizations has been crucial in improving the quality of life for many families in general.

Sergio also stands out as a passionate lover of charrería since 1990. As a federated charro, he has proudly promoted Mexican culture and traditions and has participated in numerous events to educate and raise awareness in the community about the importance of keeping these customs alive.
