La Sociedad de Ingenieros Profesionales Hispanos (SHPE – Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) es la organización líder para desarrollar el potencial de los hispanos en asuntos socio-técnicos cual primera función es en los campos de ingeniería, matemáticas, tecnología y ciencias (STEM). Promoviendo STEM para estudiantes de K-12 es una de las metas principales para el capítulo de SHPE Cincinnati. 

Cada año desde el 2011, nuestro capitulo ha estado adiestrando niños de escuelas locales para competir en la liga robótica First Lego y a llegar a ganar altos premios en cada competencia que han participado. Empleados de GE Aviación y P&G han ayudado mucho como adiestradores. Nosotros también hemos llevado estudiantes a compañías locales para que puedan ver aplicaciones reales en ingeniería (el año pasado los llevamos a la planta de Toyota). Dos veces al año organizamos el “Día de Ciencias” con estudiantes y sus padres para orientarlos sobre oportunidades de carreras en STEM y ayuda financiera disponible. Adicionalmente, estamos empezando un capitulo Junior de SHPE para apoyar estudiantes de intermedia y preparatoria para romper barreras educacionales y fomentar los estudios y carreras en los campos de STEM. 

Como parte de nuestra dedicación a STEM, hemos estado colaborando por varios años con la Escuela de Tecnología de Información de la Universidad de Cincinnati (UC) en promover una educación universitaria para estudiantes hispanos con maestros atendiendo nuestras reuniones. Ahora estamos trabajando en crear una ruta para estudiantes interesados en IT donde ellos pueden mejorar sus conocimientos en varias áreas de computar, continuar la escuela preparatoria bien enfocados en STEM/IT y dejarlos continuar su educación en la escuela de IT en UC. Para lograr esto, estamos asociados con la escuela primaria St. Xavier. 

Escuela Secundaria  St. Xavier se fundó hace 180 años, en 1831, con la misión de asistir a los jóvenes en su formación como lideres y hombres por y para los demás a través de una preparación universitaria rigurosa en la tradición Jesuita. 

La educación en el colegio St. Xavier es una inversión que no tiene precio para el futuro de un joven estudiante. El colegio St. Xavier le quiere permitir a cada joven que se lo merezca – sin importar la circunstancia – la oportunidad de recibir una educación asequible en el colegio St. Xavier. Es la meta del St. Xavier que a ningún estudiante se le niegue la oportunidad de asistir al colegio por necesidades económicas. El promedio en becas para el año escolar 2012-2013 fue de $5.400.00, lo que es casi el 50% de la matricula.  

Experiencia de Lourdes León con la escuela preparatoria de St. Xavier

Mi nombre es Lourdes León, Quiero expresarles la experiencia y beneficios  que mi hijo, Eric León, obtuvo como estudiante de la escuela preparatoria St. Xavier.  Eric se graduó de St. Xavier muy preparado para tomar decisiones responsables que lo ayudaran a lograr futuras metas.  Como padres, no sabíamos cómo guiarlo para aplicar a ingresar a la Universidad.  En St. Xavier lo  prepararon tan bien, que el solo hizo los tramites y en todas las universidades que aplico,  fue aceptado. La escuela preparatoria St. Xavier es la mejor decisión que hemos hecho en nuestras vidas y plenamente recomiendo a todos padres emigrantes que piensen en darles esa oportunidad a sus hijos para preparados para un futuro mejor. Sin duda alguna, lo obtendrán  en  la excelente escuela de St. Xavier High School. 

La Familia Conde-Silva

Este es nuestro primer año en St. Xavier High School y ha sido una experiencia extraordinaria en todos los sentidos. Como padres, tenemos el compromiso de ofrecer a nuestros hijos la mejor educación posible para que puedan convertirse en hombres valiosos para la sociedad y alcanzar su potencial máximo.  Antes de considerar St. Xavier, todos nos embarcamos en una tarea de investigar todas las escuelas secundarias de la región, y, sin lugar a dudas, elegimos St. Xavier por su compromiso con el fomento de la formación del carácter y su perfil académico excepcional.

La decisión no podría haber sido mejor. Nos dieron una cálida bienvenida por parte de todo el mundo en St. Xavier.  Los maestros, miembros del personal, estudiantes y padres de familia son una comunidad diversa e incluyente, y han aceptado nuestra familia haciéndonos sentir como parte de la escuela desde el principio.

Citando a nuestro hijo, Christian, así es como él se siente acerca de la experiencia en St. Xavier: "Mi experiencia en St. Xavier ha sido genial. Lo que más me gusta de St X. es la amabilidad de todo el mundo, tanto profesores como alumnos. Viniendo de una escuela pública, no estaba seguro de cómo me gustaría tener un entorno de escuela privada, religiosa, pero mi primer semestre ha sido excelente, tanto académica como socialmente. Todos los profesores están dispuestos a ayudarte si te tomas el tiempo para ir a ellos y pedir ayuda, e incluso hay aulas especiales para los estudiantes si necesitan ayuda en las matemáticas, la escritura o cualquier otro tema. Después de conocer a mis compañeros de clase, me di cuenta de que yo no era la única persona de una escuela pública, los estudiantes vienen de todo tipo de lugares: escuelas públicas, privadas, Loveland, West Chester, Indian Hill, del centro de la ciudad, e incluso Indiana!  Todos los compañeros son agradables y con ganas de hacer amigos, teniendo en cuenta que todos éramos nuevos en la escuela y muchos de nosotros sólo conocía algunas otras personas de nuestra escuela primaria, por lo cual hacer amigos nuevos era fácil. En general, mi experiencia en St. Xavier ha sido un gran comienzo para mí, he conocido a gente nueva y aprendí un montón de material nuevo en clases desafiantes pero divertidas.  Lo más importante, me he convertido en parte de la clase St Xavier del 2017 y parte del Long Blue Line"

Events : Our Goodbye to Penguin" Party was AWESOME!
Posted by admin on 2014/1/2 8:20:00 (664 reads)

I couldn't imagine a better and nicer way to say Goodbye to Penguin than our party on Monday! Thanks again to everybody who came last night! It's so great to have so many good friends who share the same passion for Salsa! 


This is what a Salsero from Lexington said about our party on Monday and about our Salsa scene:
"It was our absolute pleasure, the best salsa party I've ever been to. The music mix was amazing, varied, modern, and energetic. Thank you! The Cincy crowd are the friendliest, most fun, and enjoyable people to dance with and along. You guys are awesome!"

And I couldn't agree more with him! Cincy Salsa Scene has the best diversity of ethnicities, races, ages, etc. , and it's the most friendly group of people I've encountered! You guys are the reason why Rudy and I are doing it for almost 9 years already! (and, of course, because we both love Salsa  )

SAVE THE DATE: May 2015. We'll be celebrating 10 Years of Salsa Wednesdays by MidwestLatino and DJ Rudy! 

Check out pictures from Monday on Facebook:

Business : August 9th Awards Community Luncheon to Honor Latino Baseball Players;
Posted by admin on 2013/8/7 11:20:00 (898 reads)

On Friday, August 9, from 11 am – 2pm, the community is invited to attend an awards luncheon honoring Latino Cincinnati Reds baseball players Aroldis ChapmanJohnny Cueto and Alfredo Simon for their contributions to advancing the city’s Hispanic community.  

All attendees will be able to mingle for two hours with these top athletes, but as a special treat, the first 100 Latino families with children will receive free meals as well as tickets to that evening’s Reds game against the San Diego Padres – one of three Hispanic heritage-promoted games this season.

The event, which is presented by both Liberty Tax Service, a subsidiary of JTH Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ:TAX), and the Cincinnati Reds, will be held at Cancun Mexican Bar and Grill (4747 Montgomery Road, Norwood, OH, 45212).

This awards luncheon marks Liberty’s newly formed alliance with the Reds and aims to better connect with Hispanic families by showcasing the beloved game of baseball.  “This is a historic moment for both Liberty and the Cincinnati Reds,” explains Martee Pierson, Liberty Tax Service Director of Diversity Programs and Executive Director of Liberty’s Una Familia Sin Fronteras Foundation. “This event is representative of our new society, where Hispanics are an integral part of the vibrancy and longevity of a city, a community, businesses and sports teams. As a fun way to continue to recognize and celebrate Latinos for their contributions, we gladly invite the public to attend this event–filled with great food and star Latino athletes–and to enjoy a great game.” 

Latinos have had a significant presence in the evolution of the “Great American Pastime” since the 1880s. Today, approximately 28 percent of baseball players in major leagues are Latinos with 10 percent hailing from the Dominican Republic. Fittingly, two of the award winners, Cueto and Simon, are from that beautiful island. The third winner, two-time National All-Star, Aroldis Chapman (aka “The Cuban Missile”), is from another Caribbean island, Cuba, which has been producing star players for the team since 1911.

“As a Liberty Tax Services franchise owner, I know first-hand the importance of giving back to the community in which you live,” explains Gina Pinto Williams, who owns the Norwood office with her husband, Michael. “This is an opportunity to also highlight the wonderful contributions that Latinos bring to the game of baseball while at the same time show our appreciation to the community for making our city great.”
