A celebration of Hispanic heritage

TCC's annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration features a variety of activities on every campus from fiestas to dancing to speakers, films and a "game show." Honoring the contributions of Hispanic Americans, the celebration provides a break from studies, while teaching students about the Hispanic community.

Fiesta time brings students out in droves for some spicy fare. Entertainment was provided by student finalists in a dance series led by Virginia Beach Steppers instructor
Jonathan Green.
