Latino students, alumni highlighted in YVC-Univision partnership

People in Yakima Valley and the Tri-Cities are meeting some of Yakima Valley College’s most outstanding students thanks to a continuing partnership between the college and Univision (KUNW).

Every Wednesday during the 2020-21 academic year, KUNW’s Orgullo Comunitario segment features a Latino student from YVC, Columbia Basin College, Heritage University or Central Washington University. In the segments, viewers learn more about each student’s academic program, personal interests and future goals.

As of the end of February 2021, 10 YVC students had been featured on Orgullo Comunitario. Among those featured are Eddie Juarez, a pre-medicine student who aims to graduate from medical school and become a doctor, and Emilse Osorio, an enology and agriculture student with goals of advancing her career in the wine industry and becoming a winemaker.

Orgullo Comunitario segments air during KUNW’s 6 p.m. Wednesday newscast and can be viewed for 24 hours following the newscast at
