CGCC Student Leaders Attend National Hispanic Conference
Ten members of Chandler-Gilbert Community College’s Hispanic Student Organization (HSO) had the distinguished honor of representing Arizona at the 35th Annual United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI) National Conference in Chicago February 16-19. Freshmen Isabelle Rosales and Dalia Prado were among the CGCC representatives to join over 6,000 attendees for the unique cultural experience and educational opportunity.
HSO students participated in workshops on a variety of topics including professional development, diversity and community empowerment; and they attended career and graduate school expos throughout their two-day visit. The students also had the opportunity to participate in discussions about taking pride in their heritage and the importance of unifying as a culture.
