ACC HOSTS ANNUAL MOTIVATIONAL CONFERENCE




ACC HOSTS ANNUAL MOTIVATIONAL CONFERENCE


Ascender ACC held their annual Motivational Conference, titled “Stolen Education” on February 8th, at the Eastview Campus in the multipurpose room, where more than 100 students, teachers, and mentors gathered to watch a documentary by UTSA professor Enrique Aleman. The documentary depicts the story of eight children who were degraded during the 1950s because they spoke Spanish and were forced to repeat 1st grade three times. It also shows how they testified in court to end these discriminatory practices.   At the end of the movie, Dr. Aleman talked about the social and economic conditions of Mexican American families and opened the floor for questions from the audience. Professor Aleman motivated students to see and value their education during difficult political times for Latinos. The most touching part of the session for students was to know that relatives of those shown in the documentary were present in the audience, and they were recognized.
