Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

| By: Britten, Casey

September 15 to October 15 is celebrated nationwide as Hispanic Heritage Month. It traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month and throughout the year, we proudly support and celebrate the Hispanic and Latino American community at Fox Valley Technical College.

To commemorate this occasion, FVTC Diversity & Inclusion Services is offering the following learning opportunities:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 20-Friday, Sept. 23
  • Location: FVTC Appleton Campus, exact location TBD

Mariachi Band:
