ANOTHER WEEK OF
CONNECTING TO THE COMMUNITY

CHARLES DREW UNIVERSITY: West and Charles Drew University signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at a friendly afternoon ceremony held at Charles Drew University. "What we are building today is a Baccalaureate completion program. Therefore, West Los Angeles College is not a junior partner in this deal but rather an entry-point to a 4-year science and health professional degree," explained Dr. Steve O. Michael, CDU Provost.

Noting the overlaps in mission and origins of the two colleges' founding, WLAC Interim President noted that "We [WLAC & CDU] are that which arose from the conflicts of the 1960s...we are that point of hope - points of light."

ASK 2 KNOW sponsors forums where the kids get to ask the questions. This was their second event at West where they again held a CCUSD Candidate forum attended by over 150 Culver City High School and Middle School students and some parents.

TASTE OF SOUL: BIG THANKS to the volunteers! West returned to the huge Taste of Soul event with a great team of faculty, staff and student volunteers who provided information about the college.

See LAST WEEK'S recap of the Going Global Conference and STEAM nation. Also, see recap of the new partnership with UWLA.

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH FACTS:

Before Brown vs Board of Education, there was a Mendez vs Westminster. Mendez v. Westminster School District of Orange County was a 1947 federal court case that challenged racial segregation in Orange County schools. In its ruling, the US Court of Appeals, held that the segregation of Mexican and Mexican American students into separate "Mexican schools" was unconstitutional. (WLAC Facebook post Oct 4)

   

Ellen Ochoa (Ph.D.), born in 1958 in Los Angeles, CA, is the first and only female Hispanic astronaut to fly in space. She served on a nine-day mission aboard the shuttle Discovery in 1993 studying the Earth's ozone layer. (WLAC Facebook post Oct 11)

   

Between 250,000 and 500,000 Hispanic Americans served in the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II, out of a total of 12,000,000, constituting 2.3-4.7% of the U.S. Armed Forces. The exact number is unknown as, at the time, Hispanics were not tabulated separately, but were generally included in the general white population census count. (WLAC Facebook post Oct 18)

   

Sandra Cisneros, best know for writing The House on Mango Street, won the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 1995. The MacArthur Fellowship, or "Genius Grant" is a prize awarded annually working in any field, who "show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work and are citizens or residents of the United States.” (WLAC Facebook post Oct 25)

   

During the Mexican holiday of Day of the Dead (Oct. 31-Nov. 2), family and friends gather to pray for and remember those who have died. As part of the holiday, they create, “Ofrendas” or altars with favorite foods/beverages, sugar skulls, marigolds, and items of the departed. (WLAC Facebook post Nov 1)
