The funds were raised by way of a silent auction, part of “Fiesta Latina,” a day-long series of events to celebrate Latin American culture that took place on campus May 6. “Fiesta Latina” was organized by EDLA and ASPCC.

“ESOL is such an important program, that helps so many of our students – new to both PCC and the community,” said Sanchez, an accounting student.
