Latinx Role Models Day 2017

LASER’s Latinx Role Models Day 2017 offered nearly 500 Latino high school students the chance to hear from undergraduate and graduate students and community members from a wide-range of occupations as well as faculty from The Ohio State University, Otterbein University, and Columbus State Community College. Throughout the day, visiting students had small group sessions with roles models, took a tour of the Ohio State campus, and listened to keynote speaker, Eric J. Garcia, a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Latino artivist who works with different media, including political cartoons, to raise social and political awareness.  Read more.
