Adding to the many honors Norma Moye has received in her career, the Hispanic Business Association named Norma as its 2018 Citizen of the Year. The County of San Luis Obispo and the California Legislature Assembly also added their recognition.
As part of the recognition, the HBA added that Norma’s influence and hard work has allowed Paso Robles downtown and small business community to thrive; and that the historic downtown she has cultivated and advocated to preserve is recognized as one of the best small Main Street towns in America.
Other honorees are Paso Robles City Librarian Angelica Fortin and Dr. Ahmed Nooristani of SLO Noor Clinic, which now has a location in Paso Robles.
