NOCE celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, 2022

Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15, 2022, and represents a special time of reflection and celebration for many of our Latinx and Hispanic communities. North Orange Continuing Education (NOCE) celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the achievements and contributions of Latinx and Hispanic champions who have inspired others to achieve success.

We are excited to partner with colleagues throughout the District to host various events! NOCE students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in these events held throughout our District in September and October for all of us to come together and share cultural experiences.
