Latinos Unidos Club Conference March 21 back button

Righetti’s Latinos Unidos Club will host a conference to encourage youth to pursue their dreams no matter what stands in their way.

The third annual event is entitled “We Are Multicultural” and takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 21 at ERHS. Last year, nearly 100 students and parents from Righetti, Santa Maria, Pioneer Valley and Delta high schools attended.

The gathering will feature inspirational keynote speakers, artistic performances, workshops and games designed to stress the importance of postsecondary education and celebrate the diversity of the Santa Maria area. It will also serve a safe forum to discuss issues ranging from social injustice to financial aid to pay for college, according to Club Advisor and Spanish Teacher Patricia Villalobos.

Club President Edgar Rodriguez knows students, parents and staff will find the atmosphere engaging.

“As the only high-school student led conference on the Central Coast, Righetti’s Latinos Unidos Club strives to broaden perspectives and enlighten all its conference goers with cultural knowledge and motivation to succeed in what-can-be an unjust society.’’
