DDCE and other units and departments at The University of Texas at Austin participated in the Feria Para Aprender, the largest Spanish-language education fair in Central Texas. Started in 2007 by Sylvia Acevedo, CEO and founder of CommuniCard LLC and a member of the DDCE advisory council, the fair has served more than 100,000 students in the Austin area.
This year’s Feria was held Saturday, Jan. 26, at the North Austin Event Center. Ten thousand students and parents attended. Children left the fair with incredible freebies–20,000 books, 5,000 toothbrushes and 5,000 balls–while parents left with information to help their children succeed academically. All left having had a great time!
