October 2022 DEI Recognition 

Please join me in recognizing Evans Jr High School, Principal Kimberly Martin-Boyd for their commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Five community members will speak with  ESL/ Hispanic students about their roles as a journalist, project manager, an attorney, an interpreter, and a physician.  Four of these community members immigrated to the Bloomington Normal area from Venezuela, Mexico, Puerto Rico, or Columbia. These guests will share stories of how they built a path to their successful adult lives.  Family coordinator, Marianela “Nela” Diaz says she organized this event to help students “dare to dream”.
