Letter from 2021-2022 MSC SCOLA Chair
I am Diana Benito a sophomore Community Heath major I have the privilege of serving as the Chair for the Memorial Student Center’s 34th Annual Student Conference on Latinx Affairs also known as MSC SCOLA.
Texas A&M is on the right track toward becoming a Hispanic serving institution and I am proud to be a part of its community. According to Texas A&M Accountability as of Fall 2020, 22.49% of the student body was made up of Hispanic students. The Latinx community has given me a home away from home. With so many cultural programs being hosted I have had the opportunity to also submerge myself in many other cultures. It has been a great way to find my voice here on campus while also reflecting on my heritage. The Latinx community has worked toward establishing its place in society and higher education. With the utmost gratitude, we honor our predictors who helped pave the way for my generation and continue to do so for those to come. Their sacrifices are what continue to be our motivation.
While being the product of our demographic impact, this year’s MSC SCOLA team has chosen “ Yo Soy Yo y Mis Circunstancias… I Am Here to Stay,” as the theme for this year’s conference. We are who we are, and where we are today because our past led us here.
Thank you for your support and interest in MSC SCOLA. We look forward to having you at our 34th annual conference, set to take place March 31st through the 2nd.
