In February, Sergio Hernandez Jr. was appointed Chairman of the Latino Engagement & Action Council by Latino Resources’ board of directors. “My family and I moved to Evanston for several reasons. We are helping to take care of our parents and at the same time providing our sons Matias, Emiliano and Khalil with the best educational experience they can get at Dawes School.”

A lifelong Cubs fan, Mr. Hernandez was born in the Pilsen community of Chicago, but raised on the north side in Wrigleyville. Mr. Hernandez has been a bilingual educator for 11 years. He recently completed an Illinois Early Childhood Fellowship with Voices for Illinois Children and is currently working for the Illinois State Board of Education as a consultant. “I am moving in a new direction with my career and would like to positively impact education with my expertise as a policy advocate.”

“My new leadership role will provide an opportunity for me to engage the Latino community, parents, teachers and students. The Latino Summit was the first step for bringing Latinos and non-Latinos together to begin the work of creating a network that effectively delivers information to all members of our Latino community. We have to put our problems on the table and find solutions to solve them. This way we will elevate the voice of the Latino community. That is the work we are trying to do, make sure Latinos are heard. The Latino Engagement & Action Council will be the framework we use to make this happen. Increasing Latino participation is our goal.”

Sergio Hernandez, Jr. Líder de Consejo Latino de Acción y Compromiso Latino

En febrero, Sergio Hernández Jr. fue nombrado Presidente del Consejo de Acción y Compromiso Latino por la junta directiva de Latino Resources. “Mi familia y yo nos movimos a Evanston por diferentes razones. Estamos ayudando y cuidando a mis papas y al mismo tiempo dando a nuestros hijos Matías, Emiliano y Khalil la mejor experiencia educacional que pueden tener en la escuela Dawes.”

Un aficionado de los Cubs de toda la vida, Sergio nació en Pilsen, Chicago, pero criado al norte en Wrigleyville. El Sr. Hernández ha sido un educador bilingüe por once años. Recientemente cumplió una asociación en Illinois Early Childhood con Voices de Illinois Children y ahora está trabajando en el Consejo de Educación del estado como un asesor. “Me estoy moviendo en una nueva dirección con mi carrera y me gustaría impactar la educación positivamente con mi habilidad como defensor de las normas.

“Mi nuevo rol de liderazgo proveerá una oportunidad para mí para atraer a la comunidad latina, padres, maestros y estudiantes. La Cumbre de Latinos fue el primer paso para inducir latinos y no latinos juntos para trabajar en la creación de una red que de información efectiva a todos los miembros de nuestra comunidad latina. Tenemos que hablar de nuestros problemas para poder encontrar soluciones. De esta manera elevaremos la voz de la comunidad latina. Este es el trabajo que tratamos de hacer, asegurarse que los latinos sean escuchados. El Consejo de Acción y Compromiso Latino será la estructura que hará que esto suceda. Incrementar la participación de los latinos es nuestra meta.”

RoundTable, it is important that I express gratitude and encourage you to continue bi-lingual articles like that of Emmanuel Patino Gomez on March 24, 2016. Please continue articles in both Spanish and in English.
Our country could be as proud as many nations where citizens speak more than one language.
Thank you for publishing in both languages.
