Creedmoor Elementary School celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 with daily social media recognition of local Hispanic leaders. The school originally planned to start an in-school Hispanic Heritage Month celebration this year but had to adapt to an online-only program.

Through Facebook and Twitter, Creedmoor spotlighted leaders in the community, including teachers, staff, administrators, School Board members, and the Mustang Ridge Police Chief. Each post included photos and answers to two questions: 

  • Why do you think it is important to have Hispanic leadership? 
  • Who is a Hispanic cultural figure you look up to?

“It is important to host the celebration, even if it’s virtual, to show students no dream is too big if you set a goal,” said Creedmoor Parent and Community Liaison David Ramos, “In a country of diversity, Creedmoor celebrates having community leadership which truly represents the students and community they serve.”
