Business : Cincinnati State delegation visits Hispanic Chamber
Posted by admin on 2009/6/10 8:20:00 (1819 reads)


Cincinnati State delegation visits Hispanic Chamber


Cincinnati State President Dr. John Henderson recently led a delegation from Cincinnati State Technical and Community College to address a meeting of the Cincinnati USA Hispanic Chamber.

The theme of his presentation was "Cooperative Partnerships, The Key to Creating Student Success.”

Dr. Henderson stressed the importance that Cincinnati State places on diversity – and on access to an affordable education.

He also applauded the warm relationship that is developing between Cincinnati State, the chamber and the larger Hispanic community.

In recent years the Cincinnati USA Hispanic Chamber has funded scholarships for Cincinnati State students, including Graciela Contreras and Jaime Romero during the current school year.

Dr. Henderson also noted the success of such Cincinnati State graduates as Pablo Arellano, who is currently employed as an assistant brand manager for the Procter & Gamble Co. in Cincinnati. (Arellano is a graduate of the College's pre-business administration program and was the recipient of a scholarship from the Hispanic Chamber; he later earned a bachelor’s degree from Northern Kentucky University.)

Dr. Henderson and members of the delegation – which included Paul Callahan, cooperative education coordinator for the International Trade Management program --  described the efforts Cincinnati State has made in recent years to provide a high-quality, affordable and practical education to all Greater Cincinnati residents.

The delegation emphasized Cincinnati State’s cooperative education program, which is the largest in the United States among two-year colleges and solidly within the top ten among all institutions of higher learning. Last year Cincinnati State had nearly 3,000 co-op placements with more than 600 employers, and its students reported earnings from co-op jobs in excess of $8.2 million.

P&G is among the college’s co-op partners. Today more than 110 Cincinnati State students are working as co-ops at P&G, and the company counts 212 of the college’s graduates as current full-time employees.

Cincinnati State also has a strong presence in the Disney College Program, which gives students the opportunity to work at Walt Disney World and other Disney venues and earn college credit at the same time.

Dr. Henderson told members of the Hispanic Chamber that he hopes to improve the recruitment and retention of students from Hispanic families, and noted that the school has several initiatives in place to help advance that goal.

Events : MLB Civil Rights Game a Landmark Cincinnati Event
Posted by admin on 2009/6/8 16:40:00 (1689 reads)

200 years ago, the northern banks of the Ohio River represented the gateway to freedom for many. From June 19 to the 21, the banks of the Ohio River will once again become the focal point of the civil rights movement.  

For the first time, Major League Baseball’s Gillette Civil Rights Game will be held in Cincinnati—on June 20 against the Chicago White Sox. And this is the first time the Civil Rights Game will be a regulation baseball game-- the previous two were exhibition games in Memphis.

More so than any other entity, Major League Baseball reflects our collective history, including the civil rights movement. In fact, Major League Baseball was integrated before the military and public schools.

The Civil Rights Game is a celebration of those who fought on and off the field for the right for all of us to live equally. It is, at its core, a celebration of the strength of the human spirit. 

The game, at 7:10 p.m. on Saturday, will feature both teams wearing 1964 throwback uniforms, a pre-game ceremony featuring Grammy-award winning artist BeBe Winans and a fireworks display. The game will be broadcast live on the MLB Network.

But this extravaganza is much more than a baseball game. It is a four-day opportunity to reflect, commemorate, thank, remember and celebrate. Events include:

* Roundtable Discussion on Friday at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. The discussion will be moderated by Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree and will include Nathaniel Jones, James Clingman, Jr., Tony Perez and Frank Robinson among others. Robinson was the first African-American to win the Rookie of the Year Award, a Gold Glove and the National League’s Most Valuable Player Award. The event is free.

* The Beacon Awards Luncheon Saturday at the Duke Energy Center. With past honorees such as Spike Lee and Negro League star Buck O'Neil, the Beacon Awards have become a signature event of the Major League Baseball schedule. This year features perhaps the brightest honorees yet with Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron and Bill Cosby accepting awards. The luncheon will feature keynote remarks from Bill Clinton and CNN’s Soledad O’Brien will emcee.

* Starting at noon on Saturday, the Youth Summit/Wanna’ Play Spectacular will be held at Fountain Square. The event will include demonstrations with current Reds and the MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds, interactive exhibits and a Q&A. The event is free.

 The move to Cincinnati is significant both for the city and for Major League Baseball. By positioning the event as a regular season game, Major League Baseball is taking greater steps to honor our present and past civil rights leaders. And for Cincinnati, it represents another milestone for the city, which has significant historical and continuing impact on civil rights.

The eyes of Major League Baseball, and the nation, will be on Cincinnati throughout the weekend. All are encouraged to participate. For more information, visit

Events : Silvia Mendez coming to NKU October 2, 2009
Posted by admin on 2009/6/7 19:40:00 (2712 reads)

Save the date!!!

Silvia Mendez, is scheduled to give a lecture on October 2, 2009, from 12 noon-1:30pm in the University Center, Otto Budig Theatre.

Sylvia Mendez is the daughter of Gonzalo Mendez, a Mexican immigrant and Felicitas Mendez, a Puerto Rican immigrant, who fought so that Sylvia could have an equal education through the landmark court case battle of Mendez v. Westminster, et al.

In 1943, students of Mexican decent were required to enroll in separate schools from Caucasian children. When Sylvia was in third grade, she and her siblings were denied admission to the segregated, "white school" near their Orange County home. The Mendez family fought back. Their 1947 victory desegregated public schools in California and became an example for broader decisions, such as the Brown v Board of education.  

For  more information about Sylvia please visit Wikipedia

You can also read an interview with her
