The Latin@ Pioneer Prep held its first quarterly event in late September. A culturally relevant and eye opening experience was provided to the Pioneer Prep family by Su Teatro and the cast of “Enrique’s Journey." The play recounts the story of a Honduran boy, Enrique, who is on a dangerous mission to reconcile with his mother who left for the United States hoping to better provide for her family back home. Enrique overcame the most ferocious of obstacles that left us all a little bit more appreciative of our lives and situations. This was a story about a boy of massive resiliency, a trait we all must have to accomplish our goals.
"Enrique’s Journey" was also special as the star of the show was Jose Guerrero, a 2014 University of Denver Graduate! Jose was my mentor and a good friend who helped me out tremendously throughout my first year of school. This just shows how DU produces great people as well as great scholars. I can say that seeing my friend on that stage and being with my Pio Prep family filled me with a sense of pride that I had never experienced before!
