The community is invited to Central Lakes College’s March Cultural Thursday event, which will be at noon on Thursday, March 5 in the Chalberg Theatre.
Held in conjunction with International Women’s Day events, CLC staff member Rosymar Hjermstad, who is originally from Venezuela, will give an update on what is currently happening in her native country.
Since the Bolivarian Revolution of 1999, there has been great upheaval in this Spanish-speaking South American nation. By mid-2019, over four million Venezuelans have left the country or emigrated (most of them in the last five years).
Hjermstad is the Project Director of the Strengthening Institution Program/Title III Grant titled Raider Connect Services at the college.
The event will also be live-streamed by the CLC Videography Department at the following YouTube channel https://youtu.be/NC0ZvTz2sT4.
