The staff and faculty of Chicano & Latino Studies and the staff of El Colegio would like to thank everyone who attended the recent 2nd Annual Mira Mi Corazon fundraiser in support of Latino educational success. We had a phenomenal turnout--with good food, people, and some beautiful art that illustrated la mente, corazón, y talento de nuestra gente (the mind, heart, & talent of our people). We raised almost $4,000 to support scholarships in Chicano and Latino Studies and programming at El Colegio! This event could not have been the successful if it wasn't for our dedicated staff, Lisa Sass Zaragoza, Emmanuel Ortiz, Viviana Galindo, and the many people at El Colegio who made this event such fun, including Executive Director, Norma Garces, Mitch Roldan, Irina Barrera, and Iran Mejia. Obviously, the event could not have been what it was if not for the beautiful artistic contributions of all those students, faculty, friends, and community members who gave us a little piece of their creative hearts to make the event a success! We look forward to seeing you at next year's event!
İGracias a todos!
Louis Mendoza, Department Chair
