Lubbock Christian University started off Hispanic Heritage Month with a boom! A celebration was held in front of the Moody Auditorium with dancing, singing, food, a mariachi band performance and many more exciting activities.
Junior Ja’nay Settles explains how so many different organizations at LCU helped with the preparation of this event to ensure it was as close to perfect as it could be.
“For this event, members of the Student Senate, Hispanic Student Organization, Student Art Association, Dining Services and students from the College of Liberal Arts assisted in preparing for this event,” Settles said.
To show how dedicated LCU is in Hispanic Heritage being represented well, Settles explained how much time and effort went into the preparation.
“It took months to plan as we wanted to ensure that this event was the best it could be. From having various meetings to ensuring everything was booked such as the Lubbock Ballet Folklorico de Oro.”
“What we wished the LCU community to receive from this event is that although we all have different heritages we can come together and celebrate each other’s diversity,” Settles explains.
The purpose of the event was for people of all different heritages to come together and celebrate Hispanic Heritage, and that was successfully achieved.
