On October 13th from 2pm-4pm, Ludlow High School staff and Spanish students were invited to attend the first ever Hispanic Heritage Celebration, held in the cafeteria.  This event recognized National Hispanic Heritage Month. 

Spanish teacher, Mrs. Meyleen Sierra, explained that National Hispanic Heritage Month is the celebrated from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the group's heritage and culture.

Students Natanael Feliciano, Alice Santos, Hannah Bryan-Nelson and Briana Monsalve were selected to talk briefly about the contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans in the United States. Authentic Spanish food (rice and peas, pork shoulder, guava patries, potato salad, causa, plantains, white rice and beans) and music, followed the presentations.  

Many thanks to LHS Spanish teachers, Holly Chacon, Fermina Renta and Meyleen Sierra who spearheaded this amazing event.  All those in attendance said it was both educational and fun.
