El Centro celebrates 35 years
El Centro de la Raza celebrates 35 years of service to the university community on Friday, Dec. 10, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom. Awards and recognition, entertainment and refreshments will be provided as those in attendance reflect on the center’s past, examine its present and plan for its future, said Veronica Mendez-Cruz, director.
Student groups including fraternities, sororities and alumni are helping to organize the event, she said.
“Among the entertainment scheduled is San Jose Mariachi, a children’s group. They represent the future,” she said.
A video showcasing El Centro’s 35 years of history will be featured.
“We will honor those who have given El Centro support through the years including legislators Kiki Saavedra, Ben Altamirano and Cynthia Nava. They have been some of our best supporters,” Mendez-Cruz said.
