Hispanic Heritage Month

This year National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from Thursday, September 15th - Saturday, October 15th. The theme is: "Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation".


M.E.Ch.A and AVID students have taken two weeks to make in an effort to observe the contributions our Hispanic community has made to our country. You will also notice a bulletin board highlighting our Hispanic Hamilton faculty and staff; together we are all Hamilton.


Below is an image of this year's poster and also attached is a quick Story Corps video entitled, "You Are Both: A Chicano Art Historian Celebrates his Mexican American Heritage" for you to listed to.

United Nations SDG Media Summit 2022

Prisha Shroff, a sophomore from Arizona, as an esteemed panelist spoke on how she encourages youth to be agents of change & bridge the gap between technology and the future of innovation. Prisha continually searches for answers for problems she encounters in this world like fighting wildfires, climate change & social inequities.


Prisha, a young inventor wishes to BE THE CHANGE SHE WANTS TO SEE IN THE WORLD. She is applying her knowledge of STEAM and coding to create solutions to real world problems. Prisha has begun her journey to reduce impact of climate change by designing solutions such as a water-saving shower head, solar-powered drone and Arduino-based lead detection device. Her passion to save the earth drove her to develop a novel solution, an AI-based Wildfire Prevention, Detection and Suppression System for which she won the 2022 Broadcom Coding with Commitment recognition and Lemelson Award for Invention at the 2021 Broadcom MASTERS competition. As a Chief Science Officer, compassionate Prisha advocates STEAM careers for young women and girls and inspires young people on a global scale, with projects like organizing STEAM workshops in India


This year for the first time the United Nations Development Programme is joining as co-convener. The 2022 SDG Media Summit returns to the United Nations Headquarters in New York City with the goal of activating around solutions, and celebrating projects and partnerships that are helping achieve the SDGs. The summit will bring together up to 150 industry leaders, United Nations representatives, and media experts to highlight the power of media to address pressing global issues and achieve the Agenda 2030.
