Meet Latino Leadership

Meet Latino Leadership

Odalys Cordova Gonzalez, Staff Writer

What do you get when you mix a group of diverse, passionate young leaders wanting to make a difference? In case you haven’t figured it out by the title, you get Latino Leadership! Now, don’t let the name fool you, being Latino isn’t a requirement; we encourage any Crystal Lake Central student to join. Latino Leadership at its core is a group of students engaging in community service both at Crystal Lake Central High School and in the community. These community service acts include mentoring middle school students and reading to elementary school students. These activities, however, just scratch the surface. The Latino Leadership club is eager to help make a difference in our community. As president, these statements might come off as biased, but here is what some members have to say!
