- Published: Thursday, October 8, 2015
During the week of October 12 through October 17, there will be a delegation from the Universidad Autonoma Benito Juarez de Oaxaca (UABJO), in Oaxaca, Mexico visiting Humboldt County; more specifically, Humboldt State University, Eureka High School, McKinleyville High School, and other local places of interest.
Mexico has a system of state universities similar to California’s CSU system. The UABJO is the university in the state of Oaxaca where Eureka High School Spanish students have taken Spanish classes for the past 4 years during a summer immersion program. It is also where HSU students have taken classes for almost 20 years during a 10-week Oaxaca Spanish immersion program. McKinleyville High School also has a summer exchange program that has connections with the UABJO through a university-run program with Oaxaca public high schools.
The University's president, a variety of department chairs, and professors make up the visiting delegation. They are interested in visiting Eureka High School on Tuesday October 13 at 11:00 a.m. Eureka City Schools is very excited and honored that they are visiting.
