Mid-Valley Students Attend a Variety of Events This Month
Family Reading Night
STC Mid-Valley Ascender students and their families attended Family Reading Night at the campus library on October 19th. Various campus clubs had stations with activities including face painting and crafts. The Jaguar mascot was on hand to greet everyone. Food was also available and free books were handed out.
Ascender student Jaron Rojas said, “I took my little niece to experience new things and took a picture in the photo booth. I really hope she had grand time meeting the mascot and painting her little face.”
“I went to the Family Reading Night event at STC. It was so much fun and I love how it piqued the interest of the children. Not to mention the food was amazing!” commented Ascender Esmer Oviedo.
Library’s Art Gallery Exhibit
STC Mid-Valley Ascender students attended their campus library’s art gallery exhibit on October 8th. The exhibit marked the opening of the newly renovated gallery and was titled “Hydrogen, Oxygen, Carbon” featuring charcoal drawings by Luis Corpus. Corpus is a local artist who teaches at the STC Starr Campus. He uses water from the Rio Grande and burns mesquite wood to create his art.
Ascender student, Nayla Lopez, said, “I found this art talk really inspiring, and an amazing experience as well. Honestly, I've always found art talks boring but this one has changed my point of view on them. It’s incredible how Luis has taken his time on drawing those students that have made an impact to his life. It’s a way of reminding us how there is a way on helping the DACA students, on how to keep on moving forward no matter the cruel policies that we're facing. We're going to make a change in this world, and people like Luis are inspiring us to do so.
