This Week's Newsletter

"Story is the wisdom that can guide you to your true destiny--both temporal and spiritual. All of the great myths, legends, and fairy tales have that power. If you understand their secrets, they can guide you to a full realization of your self. Great stories are designed to guide us to our full potential and are as necessary to our well-being as fresh air."
-James Bonnet, author Stealing Fire From the Gods.

Here are some stories and we hope you find some fresh air.

Want to make tamales for a good cause? HTH MECHA and Familias LATINAS DE HTH participated in annual MECHA  conference last weekend along with HTH NORTHCOUNTY AND HTH MEDIA. Topics included: parent workshop in Spanish about navigating the college process, immigration, engineering, cosing coding and many other topics that are important for the 21st century College student.
