Skate & Create: Latina Sorority mentors Girls Club!

This past weekend, the Cook Library Center's Girls Club (also known as the XYZ Girlz) went ice skating with the Sigma Lambda Upsilon/ Senoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. The Girls Club is currently coordinated by Ms. Eva and consists of nine girls ages 8-12. The Girls Club meets periodically to do writing activities & talk about challenges they face. The Senoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority members serve as positive role models for the Girls Club, encouraging them to pursue their education and creative interests. The latest field trip on Saturday was especially special because previous Girls Club members came along, totaling a group of 16 girls!
