David Herrera, instructor of music business in the Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business, recently attended the Senate Hispanic Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. The two-day conference provided a forum for more than 350 Hispanic leaders from across the country to discuss a range of policy issues with members of the United States Congress and the Bush administration. Herrera was nominated to attend the conference by Tennessee Senator Bill Frist.
“I was pleased and honored to attend this Summit and will continue to learn more about these important issues,” Herrera said. “I hope to present a positive appreciation of the Latin culture in the Middle Tennessee area. Collaborating and bringing forward more ideas will continue to shape legislative agendas and a better quality of life for all Americans.”
