Serna Center opening set for April 21

More on the Serna Center

State officials and Sacramento area leaders will join the campus community at California State University, Sacramento on Monday, April 21 for the grand opening of the Serna Center.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the center, which is located near the CSUS Multi-Cultural Center on the ground floor of the University Library.

Among those making presentations will be State Senator Deborah Ortiz; State Assemblymember Darrel Steinberg; California Health and Human Services Agency Secretary Grantland Johnson; Phil Serna, son of the late Joe Serna Jr. and Isabel Hernandez-Serna; and Amador Bustos, a Sacramentan who built the largest Spanish-speaking radio network in the United States, along with his wife, Rosalie Lopez-Bustos. A poem will be read by retired CSUS professor and Sacramento poet laureate José Montoya.

The Serna Center promotes research on Latinos in the Sacramento Region, and sponsors lectures, conferences and other special events. It is named for Joe Serna Jr., a CSUS professor and Sacramento mayor who passed away in 1999, and his wife Isabel Hernandez-Serna, a CSUS professor and administrator who passed away the following year.

More information is available by contacting David León, director of the Serna Center, at (916) 278-6344. Additional media assistance is available by contacting CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
