Speak Spanish With Pedro Martinez

Pedro Martinez is the newest advisor and counselor at Vol State, and has a few ideas to help the Hispanic community on campus.

“I am going to be in charge of the Hispanic outreach efforts here at Vol State,” Martinez said. “We want all of the Hispanic students to be able to graduate, so we are looking for ways to connect with them.”

Martinez started a Hispanic Vol State Facebook page. He said that it will be predominantly in English, but if it is necessary he will put some information in Spanish.

“My goal is that people can go on the page and find out more about the Hispanic community,” said Martinez.

Everyone is encouraged to go to the Hispanic Vol State Facebook page and become a friend.

“I think it’s a good thing,” said Maytee Vinces, Secretary of State of the SGA. “For some people, it’s a little harder to understand English.”

Martinez also said that he wants to be available for all students if they have problems. He speaks Spanish therefore he is able to communicate with Spanish speaking students if they need assistance.
