Paseo Boricua welcomes Grinnell College students


The week of October 20-24th, ten students from Grinnell College, located in Grinnell, Iowa, are spending their fall break on Paseo Boricua. As part of this alternative break experience, Grinnell College students are working with staff and students at Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School (PACHS) and staff at Vida/SIDA. Specific activities include: assisting PACHS students with their personal statements for college applications; providing information to PACHS students about college life and academic work; helping to decorate Division Street for Haunted Paseo; and supporting the HIV work of Vida/SIDA. Grinnell College students spent Monday the 20th touring Paseo Boricua and are also attending some community events throughout the week. The Alt Fall Break was planned and coordinated by Grinnell College student leaders, Danette Sokacich, Vice Principal of PACHS, and Dr. Laura Ruth Johnson, an alumna of Grinnell College and volunteer at PACHS.
