Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at CGCC

In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, CGCC is hosting a variety of events to celebrate the contributions of Hispanics in the community.

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The CGCC event series is sponsored by the Hispanic Student Organization, Student Life and Leadership and Co-Curricular Programs. This year’s CGCC Hispanic Heritage events include:
