Restivo, Dr. Annette Griffin, and Dr. Lloyd Kinnison. Dr. Cloyd Hastings, I am forever
grateful for your assistance with the data collection and for helping me think through the
issues. For the many colleagues, friends and community of Immaculate Conception
Church in Denton who took the time to ask and listen, I thank you. For faith and hope I
thank Sister Adela Lozano, FMA, the Sisters of the Disciples of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Estelita Ohm and Sr. Antonio Avila.
I am deeply thankful to my immediate family. To those who are no longer on this
earth and were a phase of life: my brother, Roberto Pina, a LTEL; my grandparents,
Ignacio & Rafaela Idrogo, who taught me patience; and my grand-father, Gregorio Pina,
Sr., whose personal written memoirs encouraged my vision. I extend my gratitude to my
siblings: Gregorio, Ph.D. who opened a pathway towards education and influenced me
to pursue a doctoral degree; Lucy, Mario and Irma, Xavier, Jerry and Dora, Rolando,
Edna, and Rosa whose prayers kept me going. To my nieces, nephews, my mother-in-
law, Magdalena and the extended Gomez-Hinojosa family, I thank you.
Yet, it is because of my children: Temo, Karina, Adelita, Chavelita and Celina
that I fulfill this vision. Querer es poder. May the faith, pride and patriotism instilled by
Grandpa Pina live forever as you continue to educate yourself, honor our culture, faith
and language while you fulfill your dreams.
Finally, I thank my loving husband, Bias Daniel Hinojosa. The process of this
dissertation is part of us. You served as my encourager, a listener, computer and
software analyst, historian, and companion. This is our celebration. This is our
accomplishment - for we have become one. Together we thank Yahweh, our almighty
God, for HIS guidance, love, blessings and strength bestowed on us. Gracias mi amor.
Here’s what’s next.
