Si Se Puede: Discussion with Upward Bound Students
Thursday, October 14, 2021
Preparing Future Leaders
“As a graduate of East Aurora High School and alderman of the same ward I was raised in, I know our youth can achieve anything they put their minds to,” said Ward 1 Alderman Emmanuel Llamas. “We must continue to tell the stories of our fallen heroes and our rising leaders in every field. Aurora Avanzando provides us a platform to do just that as we provide our youth accessible examples of success.”
A focus on the next generation of leaders will conclude Aurora Avanzando on Thursday, October 14, when panels of Latinx leaders at City Hall will meet with students in the Waubonsee Community College Upward Bound Program. The ‘Si Se Puede’ panel offers a dialogue with first-generation college students at local high schools that will motivate them to navigate high school and plan their futures.
