Back in April I had the pleasure to shoot an event near to my heart. I was an active member of the Latino Student Alliance while at JMU, and I served as Secretary, President, and Cultural Director on the executive board. One of the major events we put on was Celebracion Latina, an annual semi-formal banquet to raise funds for a scholarship that would help a local Harrisonburg/Rockingham County student attend JMU. The scholarship is entirely funded by this event.
Over the years, we raised a lot of money and allowed many young people pursue their college careers. This year's event was under the sea themed, and they raised over $2700 for the scholarship. There was a marimba band, dance performances, and even a live mermaid! It was a big success, and I'm so proud of this year's executive board for all they accomplished.
You can see more images from the event on the JMU Latino Student Alliance Facebook page. I'm just sharing a few of my favorites below :)
I had such a blast attending this event as an alumna and donating my time to this wonderful cause. Congratulations, LSA, on a wonderful cause!
much love, Laura
