Thank you to the University of La Verne staff, event leads and Fidel Gomez for inviting and allowing ALPFA, Inc – Association of Latino Professionals For America Orange County Professional Chapter and myself to participate at the 6th annual Latino Education Access and Development (LEAD) Conference, held yesterday October 14th.
The turnout was excellent and exciting to see the commitment in helping develop Latino youth along with parents discovering the added values and opportunities of higher education for their families. Thank you to all the event speakers including Congresswomen Grace Napolitano, Wendy Lau, and Keynote: Shayla Rivera for sharing her humorous plus inspirational story of professional growth and personal empowerment.
Great meeting other professionals from AltaMed Health Services –Argenis Ruvalcaba, NALHE and MIND Research Institute / OCHYCC – Mike Limon that share the similar passions and commitment to the Latino community, such as #ALPFAOC. I am looking forward to next years conference.
