2013 Scholarship Banquet

Congratulations to the many students who received educational scholarships from El Amistad Club this year. Scholarships awarded totaled $120,000 to deserving high school graduates in Round Rock ISD and surrounding school districts.

Tino Hernandez Recognition

On January 11, 2004 during a regular monthly El Amistad Club meeting, a motion was made and a unanimous vote of support was taken from 30 plus members of the El Amistad Club of Round Rock . This event is very significant because fellow El Amistad Club Members singled out Tino Hernandez for nomination for “KVUE’s FIVE WHO CARE” Award. The El Amistad Club tenured members, each a very committed civic-minded volunteer and very sensitive to the personal sacrifices of the vocation of volunteerism, had selected out of their ranks, the “consummate volunteer”. True to Tino’s personality and demeanor (quiet and unassuming), he was humbled and attempted instead to single out others amongst the group as more deserving of the honor. His peers were adamant and prevailed in gaining Tino’s permission to submit his name to KUVE.
Tino is married to Maria Lucinda “Lucy” Hernandez.

Tino has four children (three girls and a boy). Two of the girls are twins all four live in the Round Rock area. Tino loves to play the classic guitar. Tino thoroughly enjoys practicing his faith and the fellowship offered at his church, St. Williams Catholic Church, where he has attended for many years. Tino is a people person and a very strong positive active member of the following community organizations: El Amistad Club, Lions Club, Kiwanas, Knights of Columbus, Sertoma, and Morning Rotary Club. Tino has served on committees / boards for Berkman Elementary, the United Way, Williamson Co. Mental Health and Austin Diocese Medical Missions.

Since 1982 after moving back to Round Rock, where he was born and raised, Tino has “walked the walk” of a caring volunteer. Tino is best described a “volunteer for all seasons”. The caring volunteer community knows if it’s winter Tino is emerged during this Thanksgiving and Christmas season as a leader in “Annie’s Way” and “Just Because”. If it is spring Tino is helping organize and kick off the annual El Amistad Club Memorial Weekend “Fiesta”. If it’s summer Tino is coordinating the Austin Diocese Medical Mission. If it’s the fall Tino is involve with the Chamber of Commerce, Saint Williams Church functions, RRISD and various Civic Club activities. Tino is an active member in “good standing” with El Amistad Club, Lions, Sertomas, Knights of Columbus, Kiwanas, Morning Rotary Club, and the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce.
