National Hispanic Heritage Month – Felipe Moreno

O’Neal Manufacturing Services (OMS) – Houston, TX

What drew you to work at O’Neal Manufacturing Services? 

It was mostly the need for employment but was recommended through a friend to be a place with lots of resources and opportunities.

What does Hispanic Heritage month mean to you?

A chance to reflect on history and the cost to get to present day.

Who would you say was your greatest influence for your career?

Over my career, I have met many hardworking friends and listened to their advice, but the greatest has been my father that has led by example and his accomplishments.

In your opinion, what challenges remain for Hispanic Americans today and how can understanding history help us to overcome them?

I feel Hispanic Americans lack the drive for education and gaining knowledge. If they understand history and what has made this country, they could strive to be someone and contribute to the future of this country, their families and themselves.

What are you most proud of?

My parents courage for migrating to another country in pursue of better opportunities.

Congratulations on passing your CWI, Felipe! We are excited to have you at OMS and can’t wait to see what you do next.
