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 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.
Gael Garcia – “The Hispanic culture, when you are raised in it, is an incredibly beautiful culture. You learn to appreciate a lot of things in life and the holidays are really good, too. Our family parties are the best times you will ever have. Depending on how the family is feeling, there is always a lot of joking around. Sometimes the entire family goes outside to play soccer and it is just a really great time.”
