The Latino Advisory Committee (LAC) proudly announces the 44th Annual Latino Achievement Ceremony. This year the Ceremony will take place in the Eastern Auditorium beginning at 5:30pm. Eastern is located at 626 Marshall Ave. This building was formerly known as Pattengill.
The annual tradition of celebrating Latino students graduating from the Lansing School District began 1977 as a way of recognizing a population that graduated less than 50% of those enrolled.
We the members of the Latino Advisory Committee asks the community to join us in congratulating the students of Eastern, Everett, Sexton and Woodcreek from the Lansing School District as they reach a milestone that 40-50 years ago, was not always the easiest to attain for that generation.
Historically, the LAC gives away up to $3,000 in scholarships to students each year at the Ceremony. More details to come. Looking for sponsors in which 100% of the proceeds will go to scholarships awarded on this night.
The Latino Advisory Committee was created in April of 1972 to recognize, educate and empower parents to take a proactive role in the educational and personal development of their children. We work in partnership with the Lansing School District to advocate for Latino families and their students throughout the calendar year.
