Medalla «Oriundo del Año» a nuestro presidente, Joaquín Valderrama

Nuestro presidente, Joaquín Valderrama, ha recibido la Medalla Alhameño Oriundo del Año por el Ayuntamiento de Alhama de Granada (España).

Según palabras de Joaquín:

Estoy muy orgulloso de haber recibido la «Medalla de Oriundo del Año» por el Patronato de Estudios Alhameños del pueblo de mis padres, Alhama de Granada.  El premio oriundo es para hijo o nieto de Alhameños. Yo nací y crecí en Granada, pero mis padres y abuelos son de Alhama. A pesar de haber tenido que seguir la ceremonia en la distancia, he podido recibir el calor y las felicitaciones de mi familia, amigos e instituciones. Muchas gracias al  «Patronato de Estudios Alhameños» por reconocer la investigación que realizo en National Acoustic Laboratories y mi trabajo voluntario como presidente de SRAP-IEAP.

¡Muchísimas felicidades, Joaquín! ¡Es un reconocimiento muy merecido!
