Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 - October 15

Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans and celebrates the diverse heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. 

September 15 through October 15, Midland College (MC), the MC Equity Committee and MC Student Activities celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a series of students, faculty and staff video testimonials. Participants reflect on what Hispanic Heritage Month means to them, the unique experiences they’ve had related to their ancestry and how they are honoring their Hispanic heritage.

“The goal of this year’s celebration is to usher a sense of belonging for Hispanic students, faculty, and staff at MC,” said Taneekwa Hurdle, MC Student Activities Coordinator and member of the MC Equity Committee focused on Education. “Every one of these participants was excited about this project. We all have a lot to learn from their genuine responses, and we thank them for sharing pictures and stories of their Hispanic ancestry.”
