Latinos Unidos has fun
“There’s a great club atmosphere. It’s a good place to chill,” Parm Sasenarine said. “That’s the best part about Latinos Unidos.”
Sasenarine is the president of Latinos Unidos, which meets on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. in room 141, the computer lab. He heads the club with vice president Antriese Suarez.
The two leaders have a positive outlook on the club’s capabilities, and are hopeful about some of the events they are planning for this spring.
One of those events is the Latinos Unidos Soccer Festival, which was a big hit a couple of years ago.
“It’s a really fun day with soccer, Latino music, and Latino food,” said Sasenarine. The club usually hosts it on a Saturday.
Latinos Unidos works in cooperation with many other groups, including the Guatemalan Exchange, to help raise money to build houses in Guatemala.
They also meet with the Latinos Unidos chapter at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. “[Their chapter] wants to know what Latinos Unidos is like in the high school,” said Sasenarine.
The group is led by faculty co-advisors Brad Soler and Kenny Ramos. Mr. Ramos, a librarian, and Mr. Soler, a computer technician, are first year advisors. They both enjoy their time with the club.
Mr. Ramos hopes to establish the club in the high school this year. “We’re all about bringing Latin culture to the high school community and improving understanding about who the Latino population is,” said Mr. Ramos.
