The Christmas season will have a service oriented theme for student members of UAH Hispanic Student Organization (HSO) this year. The newly formed group recently organized a service trip to Puerto Rico to reach out to high school students in Hispanic communities to promote college education. In December, six students and one faculty advisor will travel to the island. "We will share our college experiences with potential UAH students and discuss the importance of obtaining a college degree," said Maria Emma Torres, president of the HSO. Torres, a junior at UAH, is double majoring in chemistry and biology. A graduate of East Limestone High School, she was born in Huntsville and raised in the Harvest community. Her parents are native Puerto Ricans, and the family settled in North Alabama after her father was hired at NASA.
