This is part of a series of blogs from Noble campus representatives to give a deeper look at campus life.
At Hansberry College Prep this month, Latin music played throughout the halls, tacos and nachos were served at lunch, and the building buzzed with excitement as the students could be heard cutting paper and vowing that their door decorating skills were the best. All this in celebration of Latinx Heritage Month.
One of the biggest events: the Latinx Heritage Door Decoration Contest. Each advisory group chose a Latinx culture to celebrate and theme their door after. Take a look at some of the doors they created:
In first place came Wilson’s advisory with their “I Am Afro-Latino” door celebrating Puerto Rico. In second place, Greene’s advisory with their door celebrating Colombia. And in third place, Santana’s advisory with another door celebrating Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico and several different countries were represented at Hansberry, including Ecuador, Spain, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, and Bolivia.
Their Latinx Heritage Month celebrations will wrap up with their dance team, the Bengal Dance Club, performing salsa dance during lunch this week.
