One of the opportunities in our partnership with Sierra College is the invitation to attend the upcoming annual Cesar Chavez Higher Education Speaker, a panel discussion that inspires intellectual thought and understanding. This year’s topic is Hidden Voices: Mexican American Women of WWI, to be presented March 26, 12:30 in Dietrich Theater.
Panelists include Consuelo “Connie” Macias, Sergeant in the Marine Corps, WWII; Maggie Rivas‐Rodriguez, Associate Professor of Journalism at the U. of Texas, Austin; and Mirtha Villarreal‐Younger, Deputy Secretary Minority Veterans Affairs, California Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
Ms. Rivas-Rodriquez, a native of Roseville, was the director of state personnel at the California Military Department, where she served in multiple positions since 2001, including deputy director of state personnel programs, state equal employment officer, deputy director of public affairs and command information officer and chief of community relations.
