It is with great pride that we acknowledge the recent accomplishments of IDEAS Movement at USC’s Alma Lemus and Kevin Valero.
Throughout the course of our first academic year in existence, both Alma and Kevin where instrumental in organizing events and networking for our student organization. They have further developed as great individuals and inspiring leaders.
This summer, as many students take a break from the daily grind of academics, these two motivated and determined individuals have not hesitated to keep the ball rolling. Alma Lemus, current assistant chair, is working as a bilingual interviewer with the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA); Kevin, current chair, will be working as an assistant in a research project funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and conducted in partnership with the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration (CSII) at USC and El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF) in Tijuana.
These young scholars and activists are representing their communities (social, academic, professional) admirably as they look beyond the confortable confines of their university and step into the real world.
We cannot wait to see what great experiences, skills, and energy you bring to your organizational efforts this coming Fall semester at USC!
Sí se puede! Fight On!
