Stony Brook University’s 34th annual Hispanic Heritage Month Opening Ceremony will be held on Wednesday, October 4, from 1 pm to 2:30 pm in the Student Activities Center, Ballroom A.
This year, the university continues to highlight the many achievements and accomplishments of not only historic figures that have contributed to the rich cultures of Latinx Americans, but also those of our own faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners through the 2023 theme — “Todos Somos, Somos Uno/We Are All, We Are One.”
The featured keynote speaker is 2017 “40 Under 40” honoree Bergre Escorbores’00, ’01, principal of East Middle School in Brentwood, NY, who is returning to campus to engage the audience on his experience as a leader in the Long Island community and field of education. The program also includes the reading of Stony Brook’s own Hispanic Heritage Month Proclamation, a Latin American flags display, performances, music and food.
All are welcome to attend this free event.
