ABC40 Honor Roll – Holyoke Students Celebrate Heritage

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB)  – Students as Dean Tech in Holyoke celebrated Puerto Rican Heritage month on Tuesday. The theme of the celebration was “honoring our elders”. The celebration involved the students, home-cooked Puerto Rican food and traditional dancing and singing. November 19th is actually an official holiday in Puerto Rico. Christopher Columbus first landed on the island on this day back in 1493.
