Livin La Vida Latina

Description:
The Livin' La Vida Latina Program began in 2005 to offer Fairmont Spanish students the opportunity to use their language skills in real-world experiences. Students have created and produced several educational episodes related to topics such as Hispanic community services, immigration, and cultural topics. Students have also participated in volunteer projects and collaborative work with Spanish students from other area schools as well as native speakers in the community. Many of the programs have been broadcast on Public Access T.V. through the help of FHS media teachers, Laura Hutchens and Karl Bremmer.

Elena Robinson and Lucita Young interviewed Sister María and Laura Meza from the Holy Family Catholic Church to learn more about community involvement.

Eva Pepperman and Mercedes Clouser met with an Immigration attorney to gain insight into this hot topic.

Consuela Gentit and Amalia Bange interviewed local restaurant owner of El Mesón, Guillermo Castro, about typical Hispanic foods, customs, and dances.

Alberto Bale and Carlos Goldsberry interviewed Latin singing sensation, Justo Lamas. They learned many customs of Argentina and attended his concert with several of their classmates!

Another episode of the 2005-2006 season featured Margarita Leakas, Ana Householder, and Catalina Pent as they interviewed many guests at an international dinner party held by Fairmont supporter, Lisa Arzate. The students learned about the customs and daily lives of people from Mexico, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Peru, and Venezuela.

Recently, the program has expanded to include a speaking series to educate students and community members about topics related to the growing Hispanic population in the United States.

Members of the Mexican Folkloric Group, Sol Azteca, medical professionals, social workers, Zumba instructors, and native speakers from several Spanish-speaking countries have visitied to share their expertise with students from Fairmont and other surrounding schools.

Look for upcoming episodes during this school year featuring the talented and creative FHS students on Cable Access channel 21.

THANKS AGAIN TO ALL PRESENTERS AND VOLUNTEERS WHO HAVE MADE THE LIVIN' LA VIDA LATINA EVENTS AND T.V. SERIES SUCH A HUGE SUCCESS!
