Students who participated in the Latinos in Action Program at Park City High School attended their last career day presentation Friday morning in Ali Webb's classroom.
The 19 students in attendance, which hosted four professional speakers, all earned their seats through efforts made this school year, according to Webb who is the English-as-a-Second Language department chair and teacher.
During the year, students who seek access to the group must maintain a minimum 2.5 Grade Point Average and commit to volunteer work at the school and around the community. Last year, more than 40 students submitted applications to join, but only those at the event last week made the cut.
"Latinos in Action spend a minimum of three hours a week tutoring students at McPolin, mentoring students at Ecker Hill and volunteering at community events like Running With Ed, kindergarten registration, parent-teacher meetings," Webb said. "They also help run quarterly Latino parent nights for the Latino Parents in the community. "
