Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept.
15-Oct. 15). National Hispanic Herit-
age Month is a national recognition of
the culture, contributions and heritage
of Hispanic Americans. The annual ob-
servance is now a 31-day period begin-
ning Sept. 15 and ending Oct. 15. The
September-October period covers a
wide range of Independence Days for
Latin American countries: Costa Rica,
El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and
Nicaragua celebrate their independ-
ence Sept. 15; Mexico celebrates its in-
dependence Sept. 16; and Chile on Sept.
18. El Día de la Raza (Columbus Day) is
observed Oct. 12 by all countries and
people of Hispanic background.
The president authorized and is-
sued a proclamation for “National His-
panic Heritage Month,” thus calling
upon the people of the United States,
especially the educational community,
to observe such month with appropri-
ate ceremonies and activities.
This initiative directly supports
School Board Strategic Goal #1 – In-
tense Focus on Student Achievement.
LNHS is proud to celebrate the
culture, contributions and heritage
of our Hispanic American Students
throughout this month. In the morning
announcements, Mr. Pegues, T.V. Pro-
duction teacher, will highlight accom-
plishments of Hispanic Americans,
and World Languages teachers will
provide opportunities for students to
learn about the culture and contribu-
tions of Hispanic Americans.
¡Felicidades a todos nuestros estudi-
antes y familias de Herencia Hispana!

Our Training Opportunities
Throughout the year, cadets regu-
larly meet for activities with a local
unit. During school vacations, cadets
have the opportunity to participate
in training events around the coun-
try. We offer programs in areas such
as aviation, field and medical training,
leadership development, military po-
lice science, scuba diving, seamanship,
photojournalism and sailing. Cadets
train aboard U.S. Navy and Coast Guard
ships and can meet Sea Cadets from
around the world on our International
Cadets have the privilege of wearing
the U.S. Navy uniform with appropriate
Sea Cadet insignia. Cadets have abso-
lutely no commitment regarding future
military service, but cadets who do de-
cide to enlist may be eligible to enter
at an advanced paygrade. Cadet expe-
rience also helps individuals become
more competitive for commissioning
programs. Annual scholarships are
awarded to exceptional cadets who
wish to pursue a college education.
