LSU’s baile of March 28 honors students and presents Shelly Lares

As described by Waite High School Maestro Josh Flores in his 2008 La Prensa article entitled “LSU scholarships yield valuable returns for the community,” since 1972, the Latino Student Union (LSU) at The University of Toledo has been a “staple of support for students pursuing a higher education.

“Initially, LSU was known as M.E.Ch.A (El Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán),” but in 2003, the organization officially became expansively known as Latino Student Union, “a place for Latinos to turn to—for support and a little slice of familia in the pursuit of creating a better life.”
