In recognition of Latino Heritage Month at Dartmouth, we're spotlighting just ten of the 1,600-plus members of Dartmouth's Association of Latino Alumni. Thanks to Francisco Herrera '13k, assistant director of admissions, for help in compiling the list. 

On campus, there have been lectures, documentaries, and receptions to celebrate the month. The poet Richard Blanco and the author Junot Díaz are among those to visit. Dartmouth’s Keysi Montas, assistant director of safety and security, served as a consultant during the English to Spanish translation of Díaz's latest book, This Is How You Lose Her.
