By Eleanor Sanchez

Dr. Eliseo Torres, vice president for Student Affairs, receives the Education Leadership Award from UNM's Jennifer Gomez-Chavez, president of De Colores, Inc. The awards dinner at UNM was the culmination of Hispanic heritage month events.
El Centro de la Raza and Recruitment Services at UNM provide a day full of university activities to more than 1,000 Hispanic high school juniors and seniors on Thursday, Oct. 28. Juniors learn what it takes to get into college and seniors are treated to swift, on-site admissions.

The Hispano Student Day theme is ¡Tu futuro está en tus manos! – Your future is in your hands! Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. President Louis Caldera will give the welcome at UNM Johnson Center.

The keynote address at the UNM SUB ballroom features Lieutenant Colonel Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch, U.S. Army retiree.

A lunch and campus tour complete the day with Mariachi Lobo entertaining the crowd.
