Adalberto and Ana
Professor Adalberto Guerrero has spent his life in service to the education of Latinos and to the Tucson community. He taught generations of Tucsonans and University of Arizona students as an instructor of Spanish at Pueblo High School, and as a Spanish faculty member and Administrator at the University. He was also an activist for national legislation that changed the education of language minority students throughout the country. It is for this reason he is considered a pioneer in efforts to guarantee equitable education to all students in the United States.
FROM ANA GUERRERO:
My husband Adalberto (Beto) and I met at Bisbee High School in September, 1945, when we were placed in the same freshman homeroom. For Valentine's Day, February 14, 1946, Beto gave me a box of chocolates and it was then, although Women's Lib was still far distant in the future, that I decided I would keep my maiden name forever.
