CHICAGO, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Edgar “Shoboy” Sotelo, the
enthusiastic radio personality of the “Shoboy en la mañana” morning show
on Mega 107.5 in Dallas and a committed volunteer for the Magdaleno Leadership
Institute, has been selected by a public online vote as the 2012 MillerCoors
Líder of the Year. Edgar will receive a $25,000 grant for the Magdaleno
Leadership Institute to implement a Latino leadership project with
MillerCoors.


“I am honored to have been selected as the 2012
MillerCoors Líder of the Year and grateful for the platform
that God has given me to continue serving our community,” said Edgar. “I want to
thank everyone who voted for me—with your votes you have invested in the future
of our tremendous servant leaders at the Magdaleno Leadership Institute and the
thousands of lives they will inspire.  Keep serving the community and
‘no te aguites’ (don’t let anything bring you down).”


Edgar was among 12 outstanding Latino leaders nominated by local and national
nonprofit organizations for their leadership and contributions to their
communities.


“As a local celebrity, Edgar has used his influence to make a difference in
his community, and that is one of the marks of a true leader,” said Jose Ruano,
manager, multicultural community commerce and partnerships at MillerCoors. “This
year’s competition among the 12 Líderes was very tough, as each is an
incredible example of Latino leadership. We are proud to continue highlighting
the work of Latinos in our communities, such as Edgar, and trust that they will
positively influence future generations.”


Edgar is a volunteer for the Magdaleno Leadership Institute, a Dallas-based
nonprofit devoted to building communities for the purposes of service
leadership, academic excellence, and civic empowerment. His work in the
community focuses on empowering Latinos to reach for their highest dreams. He
established the “Shoboy’s Mega Beca,” a scholarship fund for
first-generation Latino college students and has hosted several
“radio-thons” to raise funds and awareness for the victims of natural
disasters, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the Children’s Medical
Center.


“When I was chosen as the Líder of the Year two years ago, I was
inspired to establish the Magdaleno Leadership Institute to empower students to
become servant leaders and serve our community in a spirit of excellence,”
said Raul Magdaleno, founder of the Magdaleno Leadership Institute and 2010
MillerCoors Líder of the Year. “Now I am proud to pass the baton to
Edgar, one of our most dedicated volunteers, to receive this coveted and well
deserved honor. The $25,000 award will be invaluable for us to continue our
mission of building more servant leaders for our country.”


Since 2006, the MillerCoors Líderes program has raised awareness and
highlighted the achievements of leaders within the Hispanic community through
