LatinX Welcome Back

CWU LatinX, CWU Alumni, CDSJ and CWU Business sponsored the annual CWU LatinX Welcome Back Party on Monday, October 2, 2017. Students, staff, faculty and community members ate, laughed and danced the afternoon away at the annual event, which kicked off CWU Homecoming Week. Lisa Van Der Lugt was the featured speaker at this year’s Welcome Back event. Lisa had a lot to share regarding professional experiences and her personal path to where she is now.

Earlier this year, Lisa was name director of the Washington State Commission on Hispanic Affairs (CHA). As director of CHA, Lisa works with other government officials to identify problems and facilitate solutions to assist the Hispanic community. Lisa’s passion for the Hispanic community and bringing light to these issues shined through as she spoke about her work and the numerous hurdles she jumped on her way to success.
