April 10, 2017 – On Friday, April 7, the Hispanic Latino Commission of Michigan (HLCOM) hosted a graduation event in Lansing celebrating the many accomplishments of Hispanic graduates from colleges and universities across Michigan.

The inaugural event recognized each student’s efforts in obtaining a college degree and their families, fellow students, faculty, and administrators were acknowledged for the support and guidance they gave.

“Advanced education will open many doors for these students and we are proud to lead this event honoring those committed to their future and the future of Michigan,” said HLCOM Executive Director Felipe Lopez Sustaita.

HLCOM strives to market the state's career development services to Michigan Hispanics, encourage initiatives to reduce the high school dropout rates of Hispanic youth, and facilitate efforts to increase the enrollment of Hispanics in postsecondary education and training programs.

The Hispanic Latino Commission of Michigan is part of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. Additional information regarding the Commission can be found on their Facebook page or their website.
