A group of Latino leaders with Columbus connections shared their journeys to educational and career success with students from five area high schools who hope to follow in their footsteps.
Exito Latino, a one-day event at the Columbus Learning Center, brought 180 Latino students to the IUPUC and Ivy Tech Community College campus for the second time.
The students attended discussion sessions Friday about networking, finding scholarships, overcoming barriers, and persistence with professionals representing many of Columbus’ leading employers including Cummins, LHP Engineering and Columbus Regional Hospital.
Students who attended were from Columbus East, Columbus North and CSA-New Tech high schools, along with Shelbyville and Seymour.
