Posted: Updated:

SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) - Western New Mexico University is honoring a Latino civil rights group for its work in Grants County.

WNMU President Joseph Shepard is scheduled later this month to present the 2014 President's Award to the Silver City League of United Latin American Citizens Council 8003 for its long history of community service.

Shepard said the group's passion for service and education has changed the lives of thousands in Silver City and in New Mexico.

Founded in 1929, LULAC is the oldest Latino civil rights organization in the country.

LULAC Council 8003 has offered local scholarships for more than three decades.
