“Avanzando” in Spanish means “going forward.”

This past academic year, first-generation Latino students from our campus - the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - and Chattanooga State Community College attended monthly meetings of “Avanzando Through College,” a program by La Paz Chattanooga to help empower them to succeed in college.

I spoke with two of the students before commencement: acqueline Alvarado, a sophomore here at UTC - and Cesar Gomez, a sophomore at Chattanooga State.


Next month, La Paz Chattanooga hosts Sangria on the Southside - for the first time in five years - on Friday, June 14th from 7 PM to 11 PM at First Horizon Pavilion.
