The 2014-2015 Alianza Celebration of Latino/a Achievements on Friday

By Gabriela Diaz de Sabates

The K-State Faculty/Staff Alliance for Latino/a Affairs, or ALIANZA, is hosting the 2014-2015 Alianza Celebration of Latino/a Achievements at Kansas State University from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Friday, May 1, at the International Student Center, Claflin Street and Mid-Campus Drive.

This year's celebration is a special one; Alianza is honoring two outstanding members who are retiring by naming scholarships after them. Alianza will start this semester awarding the Professor Douglas K. Benson Scholarship and the Attorney Susana Valdovinos Scholarship in honor of their tireless advocacy on diversity issues at K-State and continuous efforts on behalf of Latino culture and heritage.

Alianza also is presenting scholarships to six exceptional students. The Professor Douglas K. Benson Scholarship will be presented to Estefania Lopez; the Attorney Susana Valdovinos Scholarship to Angelica Castro; and Alianza Scholarships to Fernando Alarcon, Melissa Alvarado, Diego Sanchez Moreno and Samantha Trejo.

Please join us Friday, May 1, to celebrate K-States Latino/a achievements. RSVP to Gabriela Díaz de Sabatés at gabsab@k-state.edu.
