Central Texas College invited students to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting a cultural event in its Anderson Student Center Thursday afternoon.

This is the second year the district has put on the event, which featured food, music and information about Hispanic culture.

“These events give them a chance to learn more about those different cultures.”
