LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., Dec. 6, 2011 – Eugene Campbell, vice president of domestic minority business development for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, was honored as this year’s Hispanic Community Champion at the annual Don Quijote Awards, which recognize business excellence, dedication to service and outstanding professionalism in Central Florida’s Hispanic community.

Campbell, who was one of the five honorees announced at the ceremony, said the award is the result of a true team effort.
