June POWERhour! 
Featuring
  General Angela Salinas



We invite you to join us at the historical Old San Francisco Steakhouse for the June POWERhour! Luncheon featuring General Angela Salinas. 

Salinas, a native of Alice, Texas, was in the U.S. Marine Corps for 39 years.  At the time of her retirement on September 1, 2013, Salinas earned the distinction as the longest serving woman in the history of the Marine Corps, the senior ranking woman and the senior ranking Hispanic in the Corps. 

A Girl Scout alumna, Salinas is a role model to girls and women seeking to break through the glass ceiling. She was the first woman to command the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and the Western Recruiting Region, the first Hispanic female selected and promoted to the rank of brigadier general and major general, the first woman assigned as an assistant chief of staff for plans and policy of a major combatant organization and the first woman assigned as a ground major’s combat service support monitor. Her personal decorations include the Navy Distinguished Service Medal; the Defense Superior Service Medal; the Legion of Merit with gold star; the Meritorious Service Medal with two gold stars; the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal; the Army Commendation Medal and the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with two gold stars.

Salinas' list of accolades extends beyond her military experience.  She was most recently inducted to the 2016 San Antonio Women's Hall of Fame; in addition, she has received the U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute's Dr. Hank Lacayo Lifetime Achievement Award; the Hispanic Heritage of Texas Estrellas de Texas; Lifetime Achievement awards from Latina Style Magazine and North Star; the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Leadership Award; Women’s International Center’s Living Legacy Award; as well as being named one of 15 Phenomenal Women by Latina Magazine.

When you think of General Angela Salinas, "salt of the earth," "a true gem in our community" and "a leader by every definition of the word" are phrases that immediately come to mind.  Come meet this leader that turns inspiration into implementation to better the lives and community around her.
