We continue our celebration of #HispanicHeritageMonth. Today we feature one of our most popular professors at CW. Those who take a class with him say you don’t really need a coffee. His enthusiasm is enough to stay alert and enjoy every minute of his class. We asked him a few questions regarding #HHM, and this is what he had to say
1. What does Hispanic Heritage mean for you?
Hispanic Heritage means to me a time to celebrate and recognize the presence of the Latin culture in our society.
2. How different was it to be Hispanic when you were growing up vs. today?
Latinos today are expanding and meeting their goals versus when I was growing up, there was no vision on goals.
3. When was the first time you heard about Hispanic Heritage Month and what did you think back then?
The first time I heard about Hispanic Heritage Month was when President George H. W. Bush proclaimed it on September 14, 1989.
4. Who is one influential Hispanic personality you really admire and why?
Musician Tito Puente. The why is because he was Hispanic and famous in our community.
5. What message do you have for our Hispanic students in the CW family?
The message for our students in the CW family is set goals and reach them.
