Morton Ranch Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with 7th Annual Latin Fest

Students and community members packed the Morton Ranch High School Performing Arts Center on Sept. 23 during the school’s annual Latin Fest. Guests enjoyed singing, dancing, and cultural showcases that represented every Latin country.  Now in its 7th year, the event has become a favorite among students and staff.

Guests were greeted to the 2011 Latin Fest with a slideshow presentation of famous Hispanic-American achievements and tributes to different Spanish-speaking countries.  Students opened the show with a flag presentation dance to music by Proyecto Uno.  Radio personality Brenda Solis from 104.9 FM also attended and spoke to the crowd.

“The show consisted of a variety of presentations of Spanish dancing, singing, poems and speakers by the students of Morton Ranch High School and local talent,” said Rómulo Crespo, Morton Ranch HS 12th grade principal and creator of the annual festival.

Additional special guests and presenters included Raúl Orlando Edwards from Strictly Street Salsa/Dance with Stars Academy, and singer/songwriter Tati Soleil.

All funds raised from this event benefit the Morton Ranch High School Latinos Unidos Scholarship Fund.
