SVL presents Declaration Day August 23rd

 

 

In partnership with San Jose City College, Silicon Valley Latino is proud to present its inaugural “Declaration Day” on August 23rd at the San Jose City College Milpitas Extension. Declaration Day is a unique and special event where local Latino scholars will be recognized for their academic excellence surrounded by their family and community.

This event was inspired by observing the manner high school senior athletes hold press conferences to declare which university and football program they have selected. In a similar fashion, Silicon Valley Latino will feature scholars who will also declare the universities that they have selected. The principal difference is that Silicon Valley Latino will feature these young women and men based on their academic achievements as opposed to those on a football field.

In addition to declaring their university selection, they will also declare that they will give their best academic effort earning their degrees and that upon graduation they will find a way to give back to their community. Silicon Valley Latino will make the commitment of stay engaged with these scholars and keep our community posted on their progress.

Silicon Valley Latino and San Jose City College invite the community to come out and celebrate these young women and men as they prepare to leave their homes and venture on their higher education journeys.  You may RSVP via Eventbrite link.

We look forward to seeing you then!
