SPC Announces 2017 HHM Lineup

St. Philip’s College welcomes all to attend its 2017 Hispanic Heritage Month lineup of three free programs in September and October.

The highlights of the two-month observance are the 10th Anniversary edition of the college’s Best Tasting Salsa College Scholarship Competition in the new $11 million Turbon Student Center (Oct. 11), a Dream Act discussion with former congressman Henry Bonilla, and an exhibition of art by Elizabeth Elequin (Sept. 21 - http://elizabethelequin.com/). All events are open to the public, and all are free for 2017, said college observance organizer Nina McGrath.

“Stimulating critical thinking, public understanding and appreciation for both Hispanic culture and student success are fundamental to the St. Philip’s College experience,” said McGrath. “While we are pleased to offer the challenging, competitive scholarship and professional development opportunity for local high school students that is our signature Hispanic Heritage Month program, the Best Tasting Salsa Scholarship Contest on Oct. 11, we are excited to welcome our featured artist Elizabeth Elequin back to the exhibit space at SPC,” McGrath said.

Her previous exhibits at SPC include Turn Your Face to the Sun: New Work by Elizabeth Elequin (2011), and Jewels of the Earth/Las joyas de la tierra, Paintings by Elizabeth Elequin (2009).
