LSU Scholarship baile with La Diferenzia honors scholarship and scholars
By Kevin Milliken, La Prensa Correspondent


The Latino Student Union (LSU) affiliate at the University of Toledo hosted its annual scholarship baile on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 6 p.m. to midnight, at UT's Student Union.


Six students were recognized for scholarship—Alisya Gómez, Luis Galindo, Georgina Galindo, Travis Brinston, Alexis Ortiz, and William López—along with Anita Marquez, mother of senior AnaPatricia Marquez, president of LSU. LSU’s officers also include: Travis Brinston (vice pres.), Kassandra Reyna (secretary), Georgina Galindo (community service), and Sierra Espinoza (public relations).


The scholarship dance featured Toledo's own DJ AB Ramos and San Antonio, Texas-based Tejano musical act Ricardo Castillon y La Diferenzia, along with Paul Urbina, Dave Hernández and other Toledo musicians. Tickets were sold out, with over 600 in attendance.


According to the band's Facebook page, Ricardo Castillon learned to play guitar at a young age and followed in his father’s footsteps, first joining a musical act at age 12 in south Texas. His parents were both singers.


Castillon and a childhood friend formed La Diferenzia nearly 30 years ago and were signed by Arista Records in 1995. The group had a number of Tejano hits, including: “Si Lo Quieres,” “Linda Chaparrita,” “Antonieta,” and “Diablito.” Their latest album is called All for You, but the band is currently recording another CD.
