To celebrate Hispanic Heritage month Watkins Mill held an assembly between third and fourth period to honor the different traditions and customs of Latin American countries with performances to represent Hispanic culture.

The first performance consisted of the Watkins Mill marching band playing “Havana” by Nocturne, and the drumline performing as well. The second act was from the guest speaker Moises Linares, who is the Sports Anchor for NBC 4. Linares spoke about never giving up on what he believed in and never stopping when  following a dream.

“I said to myself, ‘I am going to be the first one to graduate from college,'” Linares said.

After the speech, the assembly held a cultural attire fashion show showing the dresses worn in each Latin American country and held a quinceanera fashion show, showing the attire for when a girls in Latin America turn 15.  The assembly ended with a dance performance from Olas.

On November 19, the Fiesta Forever party will be held, tickets start at $15 and will increase as the day approaches.
