POCATELLO - Hispanic fathers and sons from Blackfoot came together at Idaho State University's Turner Hall cafeteria Saturday morning for a workshop sponsored by the ISU's Hispanic Task Force. The purpose was to encourage communication and to motivate middle and high school students to strive for higher education.
"A lot of times, parents don't ask how school is going or what their children's goals are," ISU complex director Bobbie Arteaga said.
Arteaga said the task force was planning on fathers and sons from across southeast Idaho, but only Blackfoot residents showed up.
"It was still good," Arteaga said. "We got to work with everyone."
The workshop, which included tours of Pond Student Union, the chemistry lab, some resident halls and Reed Gym, also gave recruiters a chance to show what ISU has to offer.
