Building community one event at a time.
4th Annual Student | Parent Informational Forum 2017
Hosted by: Mexican Fiesta
Saturday, April 8, 201711:00 am - 2:00 pm
On Saturday, April 8th, 2017, the Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc. (WHSF) / Mexican Fiesta will host the critically important forum, “Decisions of Today, Impact of Tomorrow” (Decisiones de Hoy, Impacto del Mañana) from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Mexican Fiesta office located at 2997 S. 20th St, Milwaukee WI 53215. Event registration will start at 11:00 am and it is free of charge.

The goal of the forum, as cited in the WHSF mission statement, is to empower both WHSF scholarship recipients and Latino students to improve, explore and elaborate on the importance of university studies, broaden the scope of career choices and the curriculum necessary for those professions. “Falling behind in a globalized economy is not an option, the race is on and the Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc./Mexican Fiesta with every fiber of our being, will kick-start efforts aimed at preparing Latino students to be agents of change and not passive participants in a society in flux. April 15th is only the beginning. We're in this for the long haul." ~Teresa Mercado, Executive Director, WHSF/Mexican Fiesta.

The forum's target audience will be students from local middle and high schools, colleges as well as parents, Hispanic professionals, community leaders and others concerned with the future of Hispanic youth. The event will also feature a Keynote speaker and distinguished community professionals to discuss the challenges awaiting today's students at the local, state and national levels.

This fourth annual forum has continued to fulfill and expand the mission statement of the organization (Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc./Mexican Fiesta). I would appreciate any coverage of the event, if you are able to attend please send me an e-mail with your confirmation. Attached you will find the flyer with the information (English & Spanish).

Let's work together to help young students become "agents of change"!
