Chatham County community leaders who anchor our 2015 Latino Initiative have a reading assignment. Author and UNC-Chapel Hill professor Paul Cuadros is coming to Mexico with us and his book, A Home on the Field, was a natural pick for this year’s book pick. Together we’ll read about culture clash in Siler City and some powerful healing on the soccer field with the Jordan-Matthews High School Jets.
We can’t wait for the book discussion and are grateful to Paul for agreeing to be Team Leader for the 2015 Latino Initiative. To learn more about his amazing work with UNC students through the Scholars’ Latino Initiative program, CLICK HERE.
Meanwhile, the CIU travel delegation is taking shape and we are thrilled, so far, to have Chatham County representation from law enforcement, public health, K-12 education, community colleges, city government and economic development. Next up for our group: Chatham County needs assessment and, of course, read A Home on the Field.
