Latinx Heritage Day 2021

  • On Nov. 8, students at the International Welcome Center celebrated their heritage with lesson plans centered on Latinx history, guest speakers from Latinx communities, and a special luncheon where they got to eat their own traditional food along with trying traditional dishes from their peers' cultures. Speakers were from Mexico, Nicaragua, Brazil, Honduras and Colombia. They spoke to students about their professions in the fields of medicine, fine arts, law, and advocacy. Two of the speakers were former IWC students. A special thank you goes to El Comal for donating over $700 worth of delicious Honduran food for the fiesta. Check out the IWC highlight video.
