NEW BERN – Craven Community College (Craven CC) will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting an International Festival on both campuses. Events will be held Wednesday, Oct. 2 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside the Student Center on the New Bern campus, and Thursday, Oct. 10 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park on the Havelock campus.
These events will allow students to experience the importance of cultural diversity through Hispanic cultures, art, music and food. The public is invited to attend.
“At Craven CC, we have been celebrating International Fest annually for over 10 years,” said Dr. Shelly Hines, Craven CC Spanish instructor and Study Abroad advisor. “It is important to celebrate cultural diversity, especially in modern times, because we live in a global world. Cultural sensitivity, empathy and inclusiveness are crucial skills that students need to develop in order to succeed in today’s global workplace. We are all interconnected.”
