Celebrate Diversity at WSU Tri-Cities

We would like to fundraise for La Raza Multicultural Graduation. This is an annual graduation ceremony celebrating WSU Tri-Cities’ diversity and empowering our first-generation students in celebrating their academic achievements and preparing them for post-graduation. This celebration started with only 25 student participants in 2017, growing to 36 students in 2018, and 50 students this past spring in 2019.

 This event continues to grow not only with student attendance, but with family members supporting their student’s academic accomplishments. As a multicultural and bilingual event celebrating the diversity and accomplishments of WSU Tri-Cities graduates, the goal of this ceremony is to recognize students and acknowledge their accomplishments in front of family members with no language barrier. As the most diverse Cougar campus, WSU Tri-Cities administration, faculty, and staff have come together to celebrate these students and continue to support them in starting their next chapter.

This event is open for all graduating seniors and their families.

In recognition of their academic achievements, students are awarded with a traditional Mexican stole and it is a night of celebration with traditional Mexican folkloric dancers, Mexican food, and desserts from different countries that our students represent. Each year a dynamic keynote speaker is invited to deliver a powerful message to encourage our students as they graduate, to continue to be world changers and represent the WSU family as they start their next chapter.

Your donation would open up a seat for a family member, purchase a stole to award to a student, and/or contribute to costs for our keynote speakers.

Thank you for your time and donations.

 

Nos gustaría recaudar fondos para la graduación multicultural de La Raza. Esta es una ceremonia anual de graduación que celebra la diversidad de WSU Tri-Cities y capacita a nuestros estudiantes de primera generación para celebrar sus logros académicos y prepararlos para el postgrado. Esta celebración comenzó con solo 25 estudiantes en 2017, creciendo a 36 estudiantes en 2018 y 50 estudiantes la primavera del 2019.

Este evento continúa creciendo no solo con la asistencia de los estudiantes, sino también con miembros de la familia que apoyan los logros académicos de sus estudiantes. Como un evento multicultural y bilingüe que celebra la diversidad y los logros de los graduados de WSU Tri-Cities, el objetivo de esta ceremonia es reconocer a los estudiantes y reconocer sus logros frente a los miembros de la familia sin barreras de idioma. Como el campus de WSU más diverso, la administración, el profesorado y el personal de WSU Tri-Cities se han unido para celebrar a estos estudiantes y continuar apoyándolos para comenzar su próximo capítulo.

Este evento está abierto para todos los estudiantes del último año y sus familias.

En reconocimiento a sus logros académicos, los estudiantes son premiados con una estola tradicional mexicana y es una noche de celebración con bailarines folklóricos, comida mexicana y postres de diferentes países que representan nuestros estudiantes. Cada año, se invita a un orador principal dinámico a transmitir un poderoso mensaje para alentar a nuestros estudiantes a que sigan cambiando el mundo y representen a la familia de la WSU al comenzar su próximo capítulo.

Las donaciones abrirían un asiento para un miembro de la familia, comprarían una estola para otorgarla a un estudiante y / o contribuirían a los costos de nuestros oradores principales.

Muchas gracias por su tiempo y donaciones.
