In tribute to our founder, Oscar S. Wyatt, Jr., the very first Lifetime Achievement Award from the first chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) was awarded to him, at age 99, during their annual banquet in South Texas.  

The local ABC News affiliate reported to their television audience, "The greatest honor of the night, the "Lifetime Achievement Award for Humanitarianism and Civil Rights," was awarded to 99-year-old Oscar Wyatt of Wyatt Ranches. LULAC recognized Wyatt as one of the first ranchers in South Texas to embrace racial integration in the 1960s, as well as a firm supporter of racial equity in the workplace and a longtime friend of fellow civil rights advocate Dr. Hector P. Garcia."

The below video was produced for the banquet and was presented moments before our founder received the aforementioned award. The sold-out event was held at the Port of Corpus Christi's Solomon Ortiz Center in the first quarter of 2024.
