The 11th Annual Chicanx/Latinx Recognition Ceremony will recognize the academic accomplishments of students from American River College, Cosumnes River College, Folsom Lake College, and Sacramento City College. The year’s ceremony titled, Honrando a Nuestros Estudiantes, Honoring Our Students, will be held at Cosumnes River College on the evening of Friday, May 17, 2019.
Each year a group of dedicated faculty and staff from the four Los Rios colleges meet to plan and carry out this celebration. The four Los Rios community colleges rotate in hosting the event, and students from throughout the District travel to the host campus. Students are encouraged to invite their family and friends to attend the Ceremony, which includes, music and entertainment, appetizer and refreshments and a keynote speaker. A colorful sash and printed certificate are presented to each student participant as mementos of this celebration. We had nearly 800 people attend our 2016 ceremony at Folsom Lake College.
We need your help to produce a quality recognition ceremony to honor the hard work, dedication, and discipline of our students. Our planning committee is committed to organizing an exciting event with increasing student participation each year. All contributors will be highlighted in this year’s printed program and during the ceremony. Please help us by making a valued contribution. Your gift will help us cover the overhead costs of implementing this event and allow our committee to award scholarships to deserving students.
