The auditorium at Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy was a colorful display of Hispanic culture last month, as students celebrated Latino culture with assemblies on May 1 and 2.

The student-run performances included a celebration of the life of Selena, a Tejano singer in the 1990s; a student performance of music by Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee; traditional folklore dance, and Mexican mariachi music.

"It was a piece of everyone’s culture," she said. "It was an awesome experience seeing everyone on stage all dressed up."

Also helping with the organization of the performances were Mr. Matt Brown, a PMSA music teacher; Ms. Victoria Coriano, a PMSA guidance counselor; and Mr. Omar Orozco, a PMSA fine arts and world languages teacher.

"It takes initiative and hard work to put on a quality performance that we saw with the Latino Cultural Assembly at PMSA," Dr. Karvelas said. "I am proud of the work that they have done, and I am proud of the leadership that our students exhibited in producing this show."
