Programa de Reconocimiento a los Estudiantes Hispanos 2017


El Tiempo Hispano




El sábado 8 de abril en la escuela Cab Calloway se llevó a cabo el programa de premiación de los mejores estudiantes hispanos de Delaware 2017.

Desde 1979, el objetivo de este evento ha sido honrar los logros de los estudiantes hispanos de secundaria en todo el estado de Delaware.

María Matos en su presentación dijo, "El día de hoy se trata de nuestros jóvenes, sin embargo, como presidenta y directora ejecutiva del Centro Comunitario Latinoamericano, no puedo ignorar lo que está sucediendo en la comunidad. Como hispana, personalmente conozco el miedo que se siente ser miembro de un grupo étnico culpado por los problemas económicos y sociales de nuestro país. Pero nuestros jóvenes de hoy son más sabios que muchos adultos. Como dice Wanda Flores de Sussex Tech: "Lo sorprendente de América es la diversidad que tenemos y ver al indefenso brillar".

Espero y rezo para que las opiniones extremas que estamos escuchando en nuestro país hoy sean moderadas en el futuro, y el sentido común prevalezca.

Siempre defiendan la justicia y la imparcialidad. Isaiah Gatling de St George’s Technical High School dijo: "Es importante pensar en lo que TODOS podemos hacer como comunidad escolar para asegurarnos de que todos estemos seguros y seamos respetados por nuestras diferencias".

Por favor, no acepte lo que escuche en las noticias o en Internet como si fuera el evangelio, sin pensarlo dos veces o sin investigar. Es importante apreciar diferentes puntos de vista, pero hay límites: nunca acepte el odio, el racismo o la discriminación.

Como dice Evan Rosario: "La incapacidad para respetar las diferencias entre las personas es un problema en sí mismo, pero la persecución que le sigue es horrible".

El orador principal fue Wilson "Willie" Mercado. En 1994, cuando era estudiante del último año en Delcastle Vocational Technical High School, Wilson "Willie" Mercado fue uno de los primeros estudiantes nominados y que recibiera el premio Hispanic Student Recognition por parte del LACC. Wilson "Willie" Mercado dijo: "Cuando era pequeño siempre soñé con ser presidente, un atleta profesional, un médico o alguien famoso. Hoy, estoy frente a ustedes sin ninguno de estos títulos. Soy Wilson Mercado o el Entrenador Will. Así es, soy profesor de escuela y entrenador de béisbol. Mi trabajo tiene que ser el mejor trabajo del mundo. Y fueron los maestros, entrenadores y un fuerte sistema de apoyo familiar los que me hicieron ser quien soy hoy". Y agregó, "Cuando otros creen en ti, empiezas a creer en ti mismo. Cuando crees en ti mismo, lo imposible se hace posible. Las estrellas no parecen estar tan lejos. Me despierto cada mañana y me pregunto: "¿Qué puedo hacer para que hoy sea un gran día?" Esa respuesta es simple ... "CREER".

Cree en uno mismo y saber que uno es importante. Uno le importa a este mundo.

Para el Programa, los estudiantes presentaron declaraciones personales, además de cartas de recomendación, notas o calificaciones académicas, currículos y presentaciones de portafolio. Un comité voluntario de selección formado por líderes de la comunidad calificó cada solicitud en base a una detallada rúbrica específica de cada categoría. El promedio de estos resultados fue calculado para determinar nuestros ganadores.

 

El Programa de Reconocimiento a los Estudiantes Hispanos contó con participación estatal de los Condados New Castle, Kent y Sussex.

2017 Hispanic Student Recognition Program

On Saturday, April 8th at Cab Calloway, the Delaware 2017 Hispanic Student Recognition Program award ceremony was held.

Since 1979, the aim of this event has been to honor the achievements of Hispanic high school students throughout the state of Delaware

María Matos said in her presentation: “Today is all about our young people, however, as president and CEO of the Latin American Community Center, I cannot ignore what is happening in the community. As a Hispanic, I personally know the fear that comes from being a member of an ethnic group blamed for our country’s economic and social problems.  But our youth today are wiser than many adults.  As Wanda Flores of Sussex Tech says, “The amazing thing about America is the diversity that we have and seeing the underdog shine”

I hope and pray that the extreme views we are hearing in our country today will be moderated in the future, and common sense will prevail.

Always stand for justice and fairness. Isaiah Gatling from St George’s Technical High School said: “It is important to think about what WE can all do as a school community to make sure we are all safe and respected for our differences”.

Please don’t accept what you hear on the news or on the internet as gospel, without thinking it through or doing research. It’s important to appreciate different views, but there are limits – never accept hate, racism or discrimination.

As Evan Rosario says: “An inability to respect the differences between people is a problem in and of itself, but the persecution that follows is horrid”.

The Keynote Speaker was Wilson “Willie” Mercado.   In 1994, as a senior at Delcastle Vocational Technical High School, Wilson “Willie” Mercado was one of the first students to be nominated for and receive a Hispanic Student Recognition award from the LACC. Wilson “Willie” Mercado said, “Growing up I always dreamed of being president, a professional athlete, a doctor, or someone famous. Today, I stand in front of you with neither of the titles. I am Wilson Mercado or Coach Will.  That’s right, I’m a school teacher and baseball coach.  My job has to be the coolest job in the world.  And it was teachers, coaches, and a strong family support system that made me who I am today.” And added, “When others believe in you, you start to believe in yourself.  When you believe in yourself, the impossible become possible.  The stars don’t seem so far. I wake up every morning and ask myself, “What can I do to make today a great day?”

That answer is simple…”BELIEVE.”

Believe in yourself and know that you are important.  You matter to this world.

For the Program, the students submitted personal statements, in addition to recommendation letters, transcripts, resumes, and portfolio submissions. A volunteer Selection Committee comprised of community leaders scored each application based on a detailed, category-specific rubric. The average of these scores was calculated to determine our winners.

 

The Hispanic Student Recognition Program has state-wide participation from New Castle, Kent, and Sussex Counties.
