2020 Keynote Speaker


Jose Alexis Mejia is a New Jersey native, but raised in the small town of Hartford, MI. After overcoming the academic and financial barriers of a first generation Latino college student, Mr. Mejia found a new awakening towards the Latino youth. Currently he is the youngest staff member of the Division of Multicultural Affairs, working for the College Assistant Migrant Program at Western Michigan University. Mr. Mejia has become an inspiration for students to embark on a new journey of pursuing higher education and personal growth.
