Transcript 102 ■ Organizations COLLEGE DAY M.A.S. prepares high school seniors for colleg* The Mexican American Studies Program gave high school students a glimpse of the ins and outs of college life during their sixth annual career day. As many as 400 students from Reagan, Milby, Jersey Village, Austin, and Waltrip High Schools attented the conference, held March 15 in the University Center and Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management. Assistant Director for Mexican American Studies and Master of Ceremonies Lorenzo Ca- no, UH Senior Vice- President Robert Lineberry, and Melody Ellis, president of the Houston Independent School District Board, all delivered speeches during the opening ceremonies. Each of the speakers stressed the importance of education, especially higher education, to success. In addition, prospec tive UH students heard speeches by representatives from the seven Hispanic student groups on campus. These included the Hispanic Pre-Law Society, Hispanic Business Student Association, Mexican American Student Organization and Hijos Del Sol. As they began, the students were divided into groups by class status and whisked away for the day. Students were treated to workshops on Financial Aid and the admissions process. They were also given campus tours. After lunch in the Houston Room, MAS Director Tatcho Mindiola, Jr. and Fernando Galan, professor in the Graduate School of Social Work gave closing speeches. The group was also entertained by the nationally acclaimed Tejano band, Valentino. According to Cano, College Career Day is the culmination of over four months of work. All the university students who helped in planning were unpaid volunteers, he said. Volunteers started in late 1988 in planning strategies for the event. Students got the rooms for the event, organized seminars and did most of the work with visitors, Cano said. This included meeting them at the buses they came in, escorting them to seminars and on campus tours and putting them at ease. College Career Day's main purpose is to show Hispanic teens that college is an attainable goal, he said. "We want to show these kids that not everybody has to be rich to get into college and that they can do it if they set their minds to it," he added. "In some areas of Texas the high school dropout rate for Hispanics is 40 percent," Cano said. "If we can encourage them to stick it out and come to college, we've accomplished something." ► Frank San Miguel MAS Career Day ■ 103
