The Spanish Club prepared two plates of flan, tres leches, “and a couple other dishes,” Missy said.

Setting up a Hispanic groceries display, Publix manager Tim Bryant said the food’s ready availability reflects an influx of Latin residents.

“We knew six or seven years ago we would have to switch out some of our food for the growing Hispanic population, and we’re glad we did,” Bryant said.

Many Seventh Special Forces Group (Airborne) members have Hispanic heritage, Crestview High Principal Bob Jones said, noting the school’s increased Hispanic student population.

“It has sure changed a lot in the 25 years I’ve been in the school system,” Jones said. “We have certainly become more culturally diverse.”

“The spirit of the United States is reflected in its Hispanic heritage,” Spanish teacher Leah Merritt said.
