I attended this event to represent Millersville University’s Latina/o Studies program. I was impressed with the eagerness of these students to learn more about our program and share their career goals with me. Some of the students who visited my table were Wheatland Middle School students. We have a shared experience of living in the same city. They were enthusiastic about discussing college and opportunities that await them.
Overall, the students at this summit demonstrated promise, a promise to recognize and affirm difference rather than expect sameness. Congratulations to the organizers and many participants!
