LSU to host Latino Summit to help students with their post-high school futures

The Latino Student Union is hosting a Latino Summit to provide Latino students and parents with advice on college and job applications. The summit will take place this Saturday, March 11 at 9:00 a.m. at Los Altos High School.

There will be five speakers, including the author of “The Other Side: From a Shack to Silicon Valley,” Martha Nino as the keynote speaker. Other presenters include Lucy Rojas, an assistant vice chancellor and chief of staff at University of California, Santa Cruz, and Madelean Morales, a licensed marriage and family therapist. Counselor and LSU advisor Ariel Rojas along with counselor and teacher Jacob Larin will also be presenting. 

The event will also include workshops and mock interviews to prepare teens for college and job applications. Food will be provided.

“Historically, Latinos haven’t had access to materials like mock interviews, so it is important to help teenagers as they look to the future.” LSU activities coordinator and junior Leslie Cesareo said. 

The event is free and doesn’t require any prior registration. Check out LSU’s instagram page @lahs.lsu for more information and for future events.
