Community : Miguel Alemany featured in a book "¡Ay Mijo! Why Do You Want To Be An Engineer?"
Posted by admin on 2007/9/16 8:50:00 (4790 reads)


Latinos are the fastest growing population group in the United States but comprise only 3 percent of the nation’s scientists and engineers. That’s according to the National Center for Education Statistics and it is not good news, given a growing need for U.S. engineering and other math and science expertise and innovation in the increasingly competitive global marketplace.   

To address the need for more Hispanics in engineering, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) is endorsing the new book ¡Ay Mijo! Why Do You Want To Be An Engineer? as a way to get the word out to young people about the benefits of pursuing a career in the field. You can buy the book from Amazon (click here...)

Ay Mijo (which means “my son” in Spanish) tells the stories of 12 Hispanic men who overcame challenges to become successful engineers today. One of these 12 featured engineers is Miguel Alemany from P&G

Cincinnati will be a proud host of the 2010 National Conference of SHPE, thanks to Miguel who was the driving force behind the effort to bring the SHPE Conference to our city,  the same way as he helped in bringing the 2006 NSHMBA National Conference to Cincinnati.

We would like to congratulate Miguel on this recognition, and thank him for all the support he provides to SHPE and NSHMBA!!!!

As the source for quality Hispanic engineers and technical talent, SHPE is helping promote Ay Mijo to increase awareness among Hispanic students about the opportunities found in engineering and the scholarships and other resources available to them. A portion of proceeds from the sale of Ay Mijo will benefit the scholarship program of the Advancing Hispanic Excellence in Technology, Engineering, Math and Science (AHETEMS) Foundation of SHPE.

“Many studies have shown what we at SHPE see all too often: not enough Hispanic men are excelling in or graduating from high school or applying to college,” said Manuel Hernandez, vice president of SHPE’s national board of directors, chairman of AHETEMS and one of the engineers profiled in Ay Mijo. “By participating in the release of Ay Mijo, we can introduce young men to role models who have realized their dreams through an education and career in engineering. The true stories of our own people can be the very best motivation toward success and personal satisfaction in life, and I’m honored that my own story is in this book,” Hernandez said.

Events : Ballet Folklorico “Quetzalli” de Veracruz (Dayton, OH, Sept. 22)
Posted by admin on 2007/8/31 5:30:00 (2475 reads)

  Transporting the energy of a small-town fiesta to the stage of the Victoria Theatre, the Mexican folk-dance troupe Ballet Folklorico “Quetzalli” de Veracruz, is presented by Victoria Theatre Association on September 22.

Since its inception in 1985, Quetzalli has crisscrossed the globe, exciting audiences of all ages. Their visual fiesta of culture and folklore features many regional dances of old Mexico, in particular, their home state of Veracruz (birthplace of the world-famous “La Bamba”). The Quetzalli dance integrates influences of the indigenous Spanish, Moorish and African cultures, immersing audiences in a world of stunning visuals, heart-gripping beats and electric pulsing of the dancers’ graceful passion. 

What will not be seen on stage are ballet slippers - Quetzalli isn’t ballet in the conventional sense; it is traditional Mexican folk dancing. Lauded around the world, Quetzalli offers entertainment that will have the whole family toe-tapping, heel-stomping and skirt-swishing for weeks afterward. 

Punctuating the dancers’ meticulous movement, the live music of authentic stringed instruments perfects the urgent rhythm of stomping heels and pulsing hearts, as colorful clothing envelopes the stage in eddies of Mexican spirit. Earning standing ovations from Cuba to Malaysia, Quetzalli proves they are one of Mexico’s most popular exports.

Since its foundation by Maestro Hugo Betancourt, the Quetzalli company has grown from eight members to more than 45 dancers and 10 musicians, and operates a school and training program for young dancers in their home city of Xalapa. Betancourt has studied folklorico dance since childhood and has made several tours of the United States with previous Mexican dance troupes.

Victoria Theatre Association’s presentation of Ballet Folklorico “Quetzalli” de Veracruz is presented with support from Performance Sponsors The Puerto Rican Cultural Society of Dayton and LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens). Ballet Folklorico “Quetzalli” de Veracruz is on stage at the Victoria Theatre on Saturday, September 22, at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets start at just $31, with discounts available for students, seniors and groups, and are on sale now via Ticket Center Stage. Tickets may be purchased at the Schuster Center box office in downtown Dayton or by phone, at (937) 228-3630 or toll free (888) 228-3630. Ticket Center Stage hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday, noon - 4 p.m., and two hours prior to each performance. Tickets may also be purchased online at
