HISPA President, Dr. Ivonne Diaz-Claisse, will speak at the College Board “Preparate: Educating Latinos for the Future of America” Conference in San Antonio, Texas today Thursday March 10, 2011.

Dr. Ivonne Diaz-Claisse was invited by ETS (www.ets.org) to be part of the session called: “Creating Latino Student Success Through Role Models, Mentors and Families in Schools: HISPA and Parents Step Ahead (http://www.parentsstepahead.org/).” In this session, participants will learn how these two organizations are dedicated to improving educational outcomes for Latino students through their innovative programs that bring together role models and mentors and promote parental involvement in low-performing schools.
During the session Dr. Diaz-Claisse will share the history and rationale of the organization, the lessons learned during the last four years and how HISPA collaborates with Latino professionals to keep Latino students on the path to graduation, plan for higher education and inspire them to achieve at the highest level. “I am very excited to share these practices with other organizations that are focusing on the same issues. We are extremely grateful that ETS invited us to be part of this great conference. ” says Dr. Diaz-Claisse.
