Last Thursday, ANSO Miami Chapter members attended the annual Hispanics Inspiring Students’ Performance and Achievement (HISPA) 3 Kings Banquet at the Intercontinental Hotel, Doral, FL. The annual awards and fundraising event took place in person in three locations: Edison, NJ, Doral, FL, and San Antonio, TX, to honor the Latino professionals who support HISPA’s educational programs and raise funds for these programs. The night was a total success with several HISPA role models and supporters receiving awards.
Thank you to ANSO BOD for supporting the Miami chapter and allowing members the opportunity to represent ANSO during such a special evening.
On Friday, 13 Jan 2023, LCDR Kim Glore (USCG) participated as a HISPA role model at Okeeheelee Middle School in West Palm Beach. LCDR Glore spoke to middle school students about her journey to success as a female military officer and the steps she took to get to her current position.
ANSO and the Miami Chapter continue to support and work hand in hand with HISPA to support our community and our future leaders. For upcoming opportunities and to get involved, please visit HISPA’s events calendar and contact HISPA directly via their website, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to participate as part of a Chapter volunteer group.
Finishing 2022 strong, on December 20, 2022, Miami Chapter members participated in the first career day for Hialeah Elementary School since COVID-19 lock-downs. The day started out with a light breakfast and then participants were assigned classrooms and were sent on their way. Eager student volunteers helped participants get to and from their classrooms and ensured everyone stayed hydrated and fed. One student volunteer kept asking participants if they were a detective, and fortunately for her, she eventually met one and was able to ask all her questions.
Participants came from the private, government, and non-profit sectors and included Fire Rescue, Police, Medical, Finance, Education, Military, Animal Rescue, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the National Park Service. Classrooms were comprised of students in grades K-5, with some classrooms containing only Spanish speaking students. Presentations were done both in English and Spanish.
The day culminated with lunch hosted by the school. The principal closed the day by thanking participants, the student volunteers, and the staff for their time and effort. Overall the event was a tremendous success. Miami Chapter will continue to build relationships in the community and will post future opportunities in the events calendar. For more information on how to get involved in the Chapter, please email email@example.com.
