McALLEN — Texas State Rep. Aaron Peña (R-Edinburg) was presented with the Teddy Roosevelt Award by the McAllen Chamber of Commerce at a luncheon on June 2. Peña was honored by the chamber for his leadership in what many have called the toughest legislative session in recent memory.
"I know Rep. Peña is a student of history and counts Teddy Roosevelt as a personal hero," said Steve Ahlenius, president of the McAllen Chamber. "That is why it is so fitting to present him with this award. Rep. Peña has exhibited those iconic Teddy Roosevelt values of grit, bold leadership and dogged determination not only during this tough legislative session but throughout his career."
