ne hundred and twenty-four Santa Ana Unified students beamed with pride at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina on
June 7 while wearing sweatshirts from their future
college – signifying the end of their high school careers and the start of paths that could take them
across the nation.
The students, all graduates from the Nicholas Academic Center’s Class of 2014, are part of a sea of
change that is seeing more Latino students head to
college – all because of the center’s influence.

se lo cumplió.
Ahí dentro de la iglesia y ya desgastado por la enfermedad, su pa-
dre de 56 años de edad entonó “De
Colores” como un homenaje a la
santa de su devoción.
“Fue una experiencia tan poderosa para mí que decidí abandonar el avance de mi propia carrera para comenzar esta orquesta
en honor a él y para beneficiar a la
comunidad y a las familias latinas”, expresó De León de Vega,
quien aún relata ese momento
emotivamente.
Así fue el comienzo de la Orquesta Santa Cecilia, la única orquesta en la nación que tiene como misión compartir la música
clásica con la comunidad latina.
De León de Vega se ha convertido en una figura nacional dentro
del ámbito músical, y es reconocida dentro de su comuinidad por
su trabajo en más de 18 escuelas a
lo largo del condado de Los Ángeles.
Por medio de la Orquesta Santa
Cecilia, la conductora de música
ha creado el programa “Discovering Music” o en español, “Descubriendo la música”, un programa
que lleva la música clásica a varias escuelas, mayormente en las
áreas de más bajos recursos.
“Creo que la música y las artes
en general tienen un papel tan importante en la vida de todos”, dijo.
“Une a la gente, y llena la vida de
cosas hermosas”.
Para De León de Vega la música
es de suma importancia en la vida
de los niños, pues asegura que por
medio de ella aprenden disciplina
y les ayuda a aumentar su autoestima.

oters on Tuesday will decide three measures
aimed at amending the City Charter – the
guiding document that essentially serves as
Anaheim’s constitution.
One would significantly alter how often
Anaheim’s mayor is elected. Another asks
whether safe-and-sane fireworks should be
sold in Anaheim. The third would clean up
technical language in the charter and merge
two city-finance jobs into one.
The measures were placed onto the ballot
earlier this year by the City Council, which considered a long list of recommendations drawn up last
year by an advisory panel of seven residents charged
with taking a fresh look at the charter.
This was the fifth review of Anaheim’s charter

declined to project voter turnout: “We
don’t want people to see a number, and then
be discouraged from voting.”
As Orange County’s most populous city,
Anaheim has more than 123,000 registered
voters, Kelley said. About 26 percent of the
electorate turned out for the June 2012
election, while 30 percent turned out for
the June 2010 election.
“For primary elections, those are pretty decent
turnouts that are comparable to other large cities in
Southern California,” Kelley said.

But Matsuda said if it’s

the program may be expanded to other schools

“We want to be able to

some factors that weigh
against them,” Matsuda
said. “There’s a big need

The program will allow
