PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Dear HEP/CAMP Family, On behalf of the HEP/CAMP Association board and conference planning committee, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2019 National HEP CAMP Conference in Las Vegas. Our conference theme, “The Bright Lights of Educational Pursuit and Achievement,” reflects the importance programs such as HEP and CAMP play in helping to illuminate the path our students travel to achieve their educational aspirations. Also, as many of you can attest, the students who have journeyed through our programs are bright lights in their own right. We have the great fortune of having a front row seat from which we can observe our students as they develop their sense of purpose and hone their talents. I am continually dazzled by their accomplishments. I would also like to welcome our new HEP and CAMP grantees as well as new staff joining our veteran programs. The conference is a great time to network and develop strong working relationships with colleagues. The National HEP/CAMP Conference allows us the space and time to share important knowledge and expertise to benefit our projects. I would like to thank our colleagues who offered to present a workshop or pre-conference session to support professional development among our members. The exchange of best practices is critical to our mission of providing quality educational opportunities to the migrant and seasonal farm working community. We appreciate the participation from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education. Their support with technical assistance is vital to the effective implementation of our projects. We also have some incredible keynote speakers lined up who will share their inspirational stories with you. This conference has come to fruition through the efforts of the conference planning committee, association board, and marketing and communication committee members. Their efforts over the course of a year are greatly appreciated. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to them for all the time and energy they put forth to make this event possible. In considering a venue for a conference, one thing that stood out to the planning committee was the offer from our conference hotel, The Tropicana, to support HEP/CAMP student scholarships. We are grateful for your support. We hope you enjoy your stay in Las Vegas and return home a bit more energized to take on the work in your individual programs. Thank you for joining us and may you have an excellent conference. Sincerely,

Michelle Kelley President, National HEP/CAMP Association

The High School Equivalency Program (HEP) and the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) have existed since 1967 and 1972 respectively. HEP and CAMP are educational programs which serve students from migrant or seasonal farmworker families. HEP helps students who have dropped out of high school get their High School Equivalency Credential, and serves more than 6,000 students annually. CAMP assists students in their first year of college with academic, personal, and financial support. CAMP serves approximately 2,400 migrant participants annually. Overall, nearly three-quarters of all CAMP students graduate with baccalaureate degrees. These two programs, which have achieved stunning success rates since their inception, are funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education and are administered by universities, colleges and non-profit organizations nationwide.


FEATURE SPEAKERS DR. RAMON RESA, PEDIATRICIAN, AUTHOR, SPEAKER Dr. Ramon Resa is a full-time practicing pediatrician, author, speaker and the subject of the upcoming documentary entitled RAMON RISING . Ramon was born in Carlsbad, NM and was two years old when given away by his mother to a migrant farm working couple in Central Valley, California. He was raised as one of 15 children in their two-room house and grew up in severe poverty, neglect and abuse. From early childhood on, Ramon was hired out to perform back-breaking farm labor with any earnings going to his so-called guardians. It was Ramon’s second grade teacher who encouraged him to get a college education, mentioning that with a degree he could choose any career he wanted. Ramon’s journey out of the fields was nearly cut short by staggering adversity. He had a speech impediment, suffered bouts of severe depression, faced racial discrimination in school and fierce opposition from his guardians who forbade him to go to college insisting he get a job after high school and support them. Despite his Dickensian childhood and against all odds Ramon made it through college and medical school. When he received his license to practice medicine, Dr. Resa returned to the same area of Central Valley where he grew up and went to work as a pediatrician. His life’s a testament to the universal truth that every child, including an abandoned migrant farm worker boy with a speech impediment, no family, and zero resources has the potential to become a valuable, contributing member of our society.

DR. LISA RAMIREZ, CHIEF INNOVATION OFFICER, LUBBOCK ISD Dr. Lisa Ramirez previously served as Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Policy and Programs in OESE and was the former Director of the Office of Migrant Education and School Support and Rural Programs with the U.S. Department of Education. Dr. Ramirez has a long and distinguished career as an educator, serving in a number of various positions including as a teacher, principal, and founder of a charter school. Dr. Ramirez is also a military veteran. Dr. Ramirez received her B.A., M.Ed. and Ed.D. degrees from Texas Tech University. She is an alumna of an Executive Leadership program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and in 2016 became a member of the Senior Executive Service.

EDUARDO CHAVEZ, DIRECTOR, ACTOR, ACTIVIST As the grandson of both the legendary civil rights activist César Chávez and the Cuban revolutionary Max Lesnik, Eduardo Chavez is the scion of two revolutionary families. This background has informed the majority of his work so far. Eduardo is making his directorial debut with the feature documentary, “Hailing Cesar,” released in April 2018. He is the co-founder of Latindia Studios and a member of the Speakers’ Board for the Chavez Institute for Law and Social Justice. Eduardo attended Loyola Marymount University on a golf scholarship and graduated with a B.A. in communications. After college, he played professional golf and studied acting in Miami and Los Angeles.

STUDENT CHAMPIONS

HEP/CAMP STUDENT CHAMPION AWARDS The 2019 National HEP/CAMP Conference Committee is pleased to recognize our HEP/CAMP Student Awards. Winners are nominated by program staff for their outstanding dedication and performance. Guadalupe Felix Zamora, HEP - CSU, Bakersfield Nominated by: Tomasita Flores Guadalupe Felix Zamora was born and raised in El Dorado, Sinaloa, Mexico, there Mr. Felix Zamora completed 9th grade and shortly moved to Culiacan, Mexico to finish his schooling. At the age of 25, Mr. Felix Zamora migrated to the United States in search of a better future. Upon arrival to Porterville, CA, he started working in agriculture. At age 29 Mr. Felix Zamora married Cecilia Felix Zamora; they have two sons and a daughter. Mr. Felix Zamora wanted a better future and to be a better role model for children, so he enrolled in ESL classes at the Porterville Adult School; where he was informed of the CSU-Bakersfield HEP Program. After completion of High School Equivalency Program in December 2018, Mr. Felix Zamora returned to class to help his peers accomplish their goal. Mr. Felix Zamora returned to class in January 2019, voluntarily, to tutor/mentor his fellow peers until the end of the year in June 2019. Mr. Felix Zamora devoted six months of his time to tutor his peers. There were times when the teacher needed to be absent, in those instances Mr. Felix Zamora took the leadership role to teach class in her absence. Mr. Felix Zamora’s hard work and perseverance goes to show that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Mr. Felix Zamora in an extraordinary role model for his family and the community. We do not see many students with families returning to help tutor/teach their peers, for that Mr. Felix Zamora is a Champion student.

Diana Jimenez, CAMP - Portland Community College Nominated by: Greg Contreras Diana entered PCC CAMP as one of 45 new migrant students into the our young program. Of this cohort, Diana did not stand out for being outspoken, social, or charismatic. Rather, Diana stood out for her quiet demeanor, reserved manner, and soft spoken communication. Many people view these qualities as weaknesses in a person. Diana demonstrated to us that behind her painfully shy persona was a person with a history of stories and dreams. For Diana and her family, the growing pains of a migrant family trying desperately to make a happy and healthy living were tested by the abuse of a father. Diana’s mom did what was best for the family by fleeing a traumatic marriage to give her children a better life. That meant working multiple jobs to feed her kids and provide shelter, food, clothing, and opportunity. Diana recalls the many sacrifices her mother experienced to change the realities of her family to give hope to her children. For several summers, Diana also joined her mother in the blueberry fields of Washington County, Oregon to help provide for a family in need. Here, Diana developed an appreciation for sacrifice, grit, and perseverance. Her mother took a risk of being a single parent with children to love and care for. Diana took her mother’s example by taking a dramatic risk of her own. Diana would go to college. Diana is a model student, embracing her studies in Education. She will be an outstanding elementary school teacher. This summer she volunteered at an elementary school, assisting young migrant children. This year, Diana is a CAMP Mentor in our program. From shyness to being a model student who leads by example, Diana is an exceptional mentor for this year’s group of 45 migrant students. We are a stronger program because of her contributions to mentoring the new students.

College can be a fresh start and a time for self-discovery; it can also be an overwhelming/difficult experience adjusting to a college lifestyle.

This workshop will help you discover parts in your life where you may have implicit biases and allow you to discuss and recognize where biases come from. By going through a series of exercises, we will uncover ingrained thoughts we all have and talk through them in order to discover what it would mean to actively put on different lenses to see things from a different perspective. We will also explore what we ought to do when we encounter others with different mentalities, and how to get passes conflict in order to be successful in college and the workforce. This engaging workshop is open to all, men and women. Healthy debate and critical thinking will be encouraged. All viewpoints accepted and valued. Lilyan Prado, Cool Speak

During this facilitated workshop, you will also have an opportunity to share with other conference participants what teaching strategies & programs have worked to improve your student’s communication skills.
