Celebrating LatinX Heritage Month

Dear CSN Family, 

Please join me in celebrating LatinX Heritage Month now through October 15. As CSN’s first LatinX president, I am proud to join all Americans as we celebrate the remarkable contributions of LatinX people to American culture throughout history. This month provides an opportunity to learn about the history, culture, and contributions of Americans whose ancestry can be traced to over 20 Spanish-speaking countries in including Mexico, Latin America, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.  

I invite you to join the CSN family to celebrate the occasion at one of the CSN LatinX Heritage Month kickoff events or any of the upcoming events honoring our five Central American neighbors who celebrate their independence in September.   

CSN LatinX Heritage Month Celebration 

September 15, 5-7 p.m. 

North Las Vegas campus — Tyrone Thompson Student Union 

I am proud that CSN is classified as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and LatinX students represent more of our current student body than any other ethnicity. CSN is a proud member of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, a national organization that recognizes over 500 Hispanic Serving Institutions throughout the nation for their work and critical role in educating and empowering LatinX youth. I encourage you to join in their upcoming celebrations.
