Dr. González is a professor of Communication at Bowling Green State University.  He has published five books and numerous articles on communication & culture.  His most recent publication is Our Voices: Essays in Culture, Ethnicity, and Communication, 5th Edition (Oxford University Press).

Dr. González stated that, “the Board will continue directing efforts toward quality programs and community outreach and partnerships to maintain our standing as the premier Latino art and cultural center in the region.”  

Lourdes Santiago is a senior attorney for the City of Toledo and has been involved with SQACC for numerous years.

Arturo M. Quintero was married to SQACC’s namesake Sofia Alfaro Quintero. Arturo is employed by the City of Toledo as an assistant prosecutor in Toledo Municipal Court.  He is active at SS Peter and Paul Parish.

Dr. Rodríguez-Winter has been a strong supporter of SQACC since its inception.  He is a firm believer in the power embodied in the Latino/Latina community. Duane has been involved in community mental health for over 20 years and is currently working as a psychiatric contractor for Family Services of NW Ohio.  Duane’s wife, María, is the cofounder of SQACC.

Modern Woodmen of America is presenting a challenge grant to SQACC and will match up to $2,500 of monies raised at Entre Amigos.  Funds raised will be used for programs at SQACC. 

According to SQACC Executive Director Joe Balderas, “Current programs include: Youth Work Programs, Boat Building Program, Community Gardens, Bike Restoration Program, and cultural programs such as First Friday and Día de los Muertos.”

Those who didn’t have the opportunity to attend First Friday at SQACC will be able to see some of the work of artist Veronica Englert, who was featured at the last event on March 4th. Her art will be on sale and a percentage will go to the Center.
