On Thursday, Ceja will give remarks at the 10th Anniversary Celebration for LLCEC. In her remarks, she will encourage as well as challenge young people to focus on their goals.
The following day, Ceja will travel to the Fasig Tipton Farm for additional activities. She will participate in a series of roundtable discussions with Kentucky education, business, and community leaders led by the Kentucky Latino Education Alliance about how communities can invest in increasing educational achievement for Hispanics. Ceja also will provide remarks at the Latino Student Success luncheon where BCTC and Eastern Kentucky University will announce their Commitment to Action, answering the Initiative’s 25th anniversary call to action.
In September 2015, the Initiative will celebrate its 25th anniversary, a historic milestone that will be commemorated with the announcement of public- and private-sector commitments to action that invest and support the educational attainment of Hispanics.
