If you have ever walked the hallways of Rome High School, it quickly becomes apparent that the makeup of their student body is an accurate reflection of the world we share. Students from all walks of life not only learn about other cultures but share parts of their heritage with their fellow classmates.
In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we asked a few of our Wolves about the parts of their culture they would like to pass on to others. What we found is what bonds us as a nation is also very much a part of what makes the Hispanic culture so special.
Rome City Schools would like to say thank you all for your contributions to our schools and for your willingness to share your lives with us.
Ashley Marin – “Hispanic culture is always a great thing to learn about. When I think about the different ways we celebrate our culture, it is nice to see how everyone comes together as a community here at Rome High. What you look like and the color of your skin does not matter here. We all feel the same. What I have found is that we are more alike than we are different, so the Hispanic culture lives in the American experience. We love our family, and we want the best for them, which I think is a part of every person’s culture.”
