Support the Adela de la Torre Latino Honor Society During Thousands Strong
The Adela de la Torre Latino Honor Society (ATLHS) mission is to recognize and achieve excellence amongst Latinos through scholarship, promoting leadership in students and helping to render service through a unified effort.
ATLHS values contribute towards members’ leadership, scholarship and service. It promotes excellence in Latino students by establishing a presence of Latino cultures on campus and strengthening students’ understanding of their Latino heritage and culture.
Emily Prieto, Ph.D., founder and former Latino Resource Center Director, had a vision to create an honor society at NIU in which Latino students would identify their potential and work collaboratively to advance together. In honor of her great mentor, Prieto decided to name this new honor society the Adela de la Torre Latino Honor Society (ATLHS) to enable the legacy of success through education to be envisioned and embodied by all future members.
