The National Hispanic University and Latino College Preparatory Academy to host International Music Entertainer Carlos Santana

(San Jose, CA)— The National Hispanic University (NHU) and the Latino College Preparatory Academy (LCPA) will host international music entertainer Carlos Santana on Wednesday, April 25th from 2:00-3:00 PM.  He will be coming to visit the students of the schools and to pursue his interest in helping them to realize their full potential.

     Carlos and Deborah Santana have been active in making a positive contribution to the welfare of the underserved through their foundation- The Milagro Foundation.  The Milagro Foundation was started in 1998 by Deborah and Carlos Santana to benefit underrepresented and underprivileged children around the world.  With funds generated by concert ticket donations and generous individual and corporate donors, the foundation makes grants to grassroots, community-based tax exempt organizations that work with children and youth in the San Francisco Bay Area, the United States and countries around the world touched by the music of Santana.     

“We are honored to host Mr. Santana and that he has taken an interest in the great work we are doing here at NHU and LCPA”, said NHU President Dr. David Lopez.

     Mr. Santana will visit the east side San Jose campus of NHU and speak at an assembly of the Latino College Preparatory Academy.  Students will have an opportunity to hear from the music legend and ask questions. 

     The National Hispanic University is a private, accredited, 4-year university celebrating its 25th year in higher education.  Founded in 2001, the Latino College Preparatory Academy is a charter high school for English Language Learners and is the first part of the NHU 8-year academic ladder (Grades 9-baccaulaureate degree at NHU). The LCPA resides on NHU’s 11-acre campus.
