The Latinx Graduation and Recognition Ceremony was established in 1993 to recognize the accomplishments of Latinx students at De Anza College.

Believing that student success should be celebrated, a small group of Latinx staff members organized institutional and community support to launch this event, which has grown into an annual tradition for students, families and friends.
