Latinos Unidos Club encourages students to think college


Stereotypes and identity issues are just two topics that will be addressed on April 27 at the Righetti High School Latinos Unidos Club’s first annual event designed to inform students and parents about the benefits of attending college.

The conference will also provide insight into the tools needed to move on to higher education and talk about the available funding out there to help with the educational process. More than 200 students and parents are expected from all the area’s high schools.

“I want our Latino students to realize that there are many more opportunities for them when they hold a college degree in their hands,” said Righetti teacher Patricia Villalobos in a press release.

The club was organized last year after educations and students attended a similar event held at UC Santa Barbara. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Righetti gym, 941 E. Foster Road in Santa Maria.
