About

HOLA (Hispanic Outreach & Latino Awareness) promotes Hispanic/Latino culture within Fenwick and forges connections with local Hispanic/Latino communities. Each meeting includes at least one discussion topic related to Hispanic/Latino culture.

Highlights

Every year we construct an altar in the Fenwick library to celebrate Day of the Dead, and we sponsor a food drive each spring to benefit the food pantry at St. Pius in Pilsen.

Events

Recent years have included a service trip to the St. Pius soup kitchen where we served food to people in need, a field trip to explore the National Museum of Mexican Art, an alumni panel that featured accomplished Fenwick alumni of HIspanic/Latino heritage, and a guest speaker who led discussion about the meaning and connotations of the terms "Hispanic" and "Latino." We meet every other Wednesday.
