Corazon Latino 2012

October 2011
    Christina Romero, a junior at ETSU, student worker at the LCRC, and co-founder of Hispanic American Student Community Alliance (HASCA), took over the reins of this multicultural festival in the summer of 2011. The event was a great success due to the cooperation and support of people of diverse backgrounds and companies, which is the goal of the festival. With the help of Calan Charlton, Americorps VISTA worker, they were able to bring the event to the people in October and secure a date for what will be the biggest Corazon Latino yet in May 2012.


1st Annual CORAZON LATINO FESTIVAL October 2011
