TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson's Mayor is being honored for his work to help Mexicans abroad. 

A ceremony for Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will be held right in front of city hall this morning at 10 a.m. 

The Consulate of Mexico in Tucson will honor Mayor Rothschild with the Ohtli Award, at Sunset Park in front of City Hall.  The Ohtli award is the highest recognition by the Mexican government to members of the community in the U.S. that have contributed to the development of the Mexican community living abroad. 

Mayor Rothschild will receive a medal, a silver rosette and a certificate signed by the president of the Institute of Mexicans Abroad. 

The Consulate says Mayor Rothschild and the City of Tucson have been great allies of the consulate in working together to strengthen the relationship with Mexico.

"I am honored to receive this award, especially for the international friendship it represents," said Mayor Rothschild, in a recent release. "Tucson and Mexico have longstanding ties. Expanding those to include more business connections can only benefit our region as a whole."

After the award ceremony, Mexican artist Ariel Diaz will donate his sculpture "Bird of Paradise" to the City of Tucson.
