7th Annual Midwest H.A.L.O.
Encuentro
Kansas State University - October 8th, 2013

Encuentro 2013

The Hispanic American Leadership Organization at Kansas State University would like to invite you to this unique event. The goal of the Encuentro is to provide an environment where students can learn about the unexpected challenges they may encounter during their collegiate years, and how others before have overcome those challenges and attained their educational goals. It is also an educational tool that assists in Latino student identity development.
Tommy Walker, co-producer of The Latino List, will provide the keynote address to our audience during the event in conjunction with the Hispanic Heritage Month.
Walker has worked in film and television for twenty-four years. He began his career in 1985 working in postproduction for National Geographic's Explorer series. In 1991 Walker was the production manager for the PBS documentary "Mandela in America", which followed Mandela on his first visit to the United States.
Walker is currently a producer and partner with Freemind Beauty a production company that has produced The Blacklist and the Latino List an HBO documentary series that reveals the diverse experience of being black or Latino in America through portrait style interviews with leading African- American and Latino figures. Walker is also an Executive Producer for the feature documentary film, About Face, which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and aired on HBO in the summer of 2012.
Traditional musical entertainment will be provided by Tropa Norteņa out of Omaha, NE. This band will perform during lunch, and will play traditional Latino/Hispanic music.
