LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Wednesday, Texas Tech will host the 2010 Latino Education Summit.
"These students as a growing percentage of the population are our future college students, our future clients and customers and more importantly our future tax payers so it behooves all of us to improve the education rate for Latinos, the retention rate for Latinos so we can all benefit in the future," said Paul Ruiz of the Cross Cultural Academic Advancement Center of Texas Tech.
The summit will start Wednesday morning at 9 AM at the Overton Hotel, and will have information on research and programs designed to promote educational success for Latinos. The summit is open to the public.
