    HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

    The ELL Department & BPAC of School District U-46 in partnership with Gail Borden Public Library Present... Ernesto Mejía in celebration of HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH. 

    School District U-46 parents will have an inspirational, special visit from Ernesto Mejia, the proud son of Mexican immigrants. Diagnosed with the rare disease of Guillain- Barré Syndrome at the age of 16 that left him temporarily paralyzed, he was not supposed to be a successful student, much less a College Dean of Students. Through his hardships, Ernesto learned to overcome obstacles and never give up on life or the American dream: education.

    Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  Gail Borden Public Library - Main Campus The Meadows Community Room 270 N Grove Ave, Elgin, IL 60120

    Activities for children ages 5-10

    **Presentation will be conducted in Spanish with interpretation into English** Snacks and drinks will be provided.
