Are you part of a public school district in New Mexico? If so, you should consider inviting Latino Youth Speaker Fabian Ramirez to speak to the students at your school. He recently visited Mesa Middle School in Las Cruces, NM and did a fantastic job. He addressed the parents one night at a community event held at the school. In fact, if your school or organization received grant money you may need to have a community component when using your funds. Fabian would be an excellent way in which to use those funds. His speech helps parents know how to relate to their kids.
The day after the parent presentation, Fabian spoke to all students at Mesa Middle School. Shortly after his presentation, there was a buzz around campus in which students were inspired to treat each other with respect. Not only that but they were challenged to finish high school and continue on to college.Fabian also spoke at Maxwell Municipal Schools. The school was rural but the students were open to Fabian’s message about academic success and anti-bullying. The schools have their own FFA chapter in which Fabian brought up in his presentation. He was able to leave posters for every student who attended his motivational presentation. Student came up afterwards and thanked him for his encouraging words. Many left excited about learning, which is what every school event planners wants, for their students to be ready to learn and be their best.
