White House Holds Community Forum on Hispanic Education


BOSTON, -- The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans (WHI), will sponsor a Community Conversation at Bunker Hill Community College on Friday, August 28, 2009. BHCC is co-hosting the event with University of Massachusetts Boston.


The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans was created by Executive Order on September 24, 1990 to improve Federal efforts to promote quality education for Hispanic Americans. The Director of WHI is Juan Sepulveda, who has contacted Hispanic communities nationwide for these town-hall style meetings across the country. Sepulveda is visiting Hispanic communities to gain input prior to updating the Executive Order later this year.


At Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, Sepulveda will be meeting with Hispanic community leaders, educators, students and local activists in a dialogue to promote understanding on what the WHI can do to improve Hispanic education.


This day-long event will have two consecutive sessions, one beginning at 9:30 a.m. (ending at 11:30 a.m.) and one at 12:45 p.m. (ending at 2:15 p.m.). Mr. Sepulveda will be available for media interviews at 9:00 a.m. and at 2:15 pm. Other times may also be scheduled. As space is limited, RSVPs are strongly encouraged: Please call 617 228 3404.


Mr. Sepulveda will be welcomed by Dr. Mary Fifield, President of BHCC, and BHCC Board of Trustees Member Gerardo Villacres. Dr. Winston Langley, Provost of UMass Boston will also deliver opening remarks.
