On October 18, the Dale Mabry campus was the scene for an international festival celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month underneath the sails along the beautiful courtyards. The day started with the sounds of Latin America with a medley of sounds from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.
Guest speaker Eduardo Calcines presented thoughts from his book, “Leaving Glorytown: One Boy’s Struggle Under Castro.” He inspired the audience with a discussion from his upcoming book, “The American Me: An Immigrant’s Story.”
The lunch hour kicked off with Dancing with the Stars—students moved to the rhythm of salsa, merengue, bachata, and a variety of other dance favorites. All that dancing called for a delicious lunch, featuring the tastes of Latin America and the Caribbean.
