Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 Events

Thank you to all the students, faculty, staff and community members who participated and/or helped during our National Hispanic Heritage Month events.

Thank you for recognizing and celebrating with us the contributions and importance of Hispanics and Latino Americans to the United States and those American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.

We highly encourage everyone to take a moment to appreciate and enjoy the inspiring artwork and the creative essays that our talented AC students created based on this year’s theme “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation,” which calls on “citizens of this nation from all walks of life to look around and welcome new voices to the table. This will help us build stronger communities and in turn, a stronger nation…” a stronger Estados Unidos, a stronger United States!
