IN MEMORIAM:

Nydia Peluffo


It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Mrs. Nydia Peluffo, a former Board Member of the Hispanic Arts Council of St Louis and dear member of the Hispanic community in St Louis, who passed away on Friday, February 15th, 2019. Nydia, a beloved Argentinean friend taught for years at John Burroughs High School and was a Spanish Lecturer for many years at Washington University in St Louis. Those who got to know Nydia as a colleague and friend were fond of her and admire her humor, sharp intellect, love for teaching, dedication to her family and friends, fiery loyalty, generosity, deep curiosity, passion for the arts especially classical music, and volunteering. She left this world shortly before turning 90, having lived a full life, in peace and surrounded by family in Argentina. Requiescat in Pace Nydia, we will miss you!

COLLINSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL WORKS WITH THE HISPANIC ARTS COUNCIL OF ST LOUIS TO PLACE LATINO STUDENTS IN COLLEGE!


Collinsville High School is a proud participant in the Universidad Ya (College Now) college readiness program for junior and senior Latino Students. Universidad Ya is an initiative of the Hispanic Arts Council of St. Louis.

The program is lead by Mrs. Virginia Braxs, a senior lecturer in Spanish at Washington University in St. Louis.

Students meet four times a year during their lunch/study periods. Mrs. Braxs presents a variety of information to help students understand what is needed for college. Topics range from the importance of your GPA, scholarships, completing the FASFA and applying for college.

This year, students who attended all four sessions were awarded a tablet computer. They were congratulated by CHS Principal David Snider.
