Transcript HISPANIC LABOR Business students create fundraisers and fun The Hispanic Student Associ- ation has always had a tradition of endeavor and fellowship throughout its existence at the University of Houston. The academic year of 1988- 89 proved no different. Led by President Mario Reyna, the organization pushed onward with renewed vigor. The fall semester began with a fajita sale to benefit H.B.S.A.'s newly established scholarship fund. It was a big success and almost $500.00 was raised. An additional contribution to the fund was made by Mr. Joe Samaniego of Adolf Coor's Company of Houston which increased it substantially. A short time later, the organization turned its attention towards the community. As it has been for the last two years, H.B.S.A. donated its time and efforts to a community service project called MAGIC Christmas (Mexican American Greatest Involvement in the Community). They aided in the distribution of food and clothing to needy families in the Second Ward area. The event took place at El Mercado del Sol, a refurbished warehouse full of shops and eateries, just on the outskirts of east downtown. Members, on occasion, delivered goods to those who were unable to get out to the Mercado. Though Mario Reyna was limited in his time spent with the organization, other officers kept up his duties: Vice- President, Juan Molina; Vice-President — Professional Relations, Ramiro Bustillos; Treasurer, Chris Coronado; Secretary, Rene Gonzales; and Historian, Ricky Rodriguez. As the spring semester began, it came time for a changing of the guard; time to replace the old officers. The H.B.S.A. elections of new officers was more like a shuffle than a change. Juan Molina was elected President; Ricky Rodriguez, Vice- President; Ramiro Bustillos remained Vice- President — Profession- al Relations; Rene Gonzales, Treasurer; Imelda Molina, Secretary; and Cecilia Montoya, Historian. Under this new administration, many plans were laid out and projects undertaken. For fundraisers, the organization decided to hold bake sales during the course of the semester. The sales modestly bolstered the scholarship fund. In mid- February, the Houston Hispanic Forum asked H.B.S.A. to volunteer and aid the Forum in putting on a Careers Day for area high school students. This proved more challenging than was first thought; ushering and feeding a few thousand students turned out to be quite a task. On April 8, H.B.S.A., the College of Business, and all the organizations within the College of Business volunteered their resources to paint the homes of needy and elderly families in the surrounding neighborhood. These are but a small list of activities H.B.S.A. has done. They have set for themselves a standard that shall hopefully never end. ► Ricky Rodriquez 104 ■ Organizations
