JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - While ASU students had a rather long winter break during the holidays, many faculty and staff members did not. The Recruitment Office at Arkansas State is one of the offices that have been working hard.

This year the recruitment approach was a little different. High School students all over the state received regular letters from Recruitment Advisors in English. However, parents of Spanish-speaking students received letters in Spanish as well.

Ana Saucedo is a bilingual Recruitment Advisor and she said sending the letters is only the beginning of the university's plan.

"We are thinking about having workshops," said Saucedo. "To help parents and students fill out their FASFA forms, application for scholarships, applications for admission, or anything related to academics.

Pretty much anyone that wants to participate can come. Anyone that wants to help can also contact me so we can make this happen."

Saucedo has only been able to send letters to those who have applied to or have sent their ACT scores to ASU. She said that up until mid-January she has been able to send out roughly 1,000.

She told Region 8 News that her main goal at the moment is to make parents feel comfortable when they have a question about their kid's education.

She also shared that in the near future she hopes to lower the number of students that come from a Spanish-speaking background that do not pursuit higher education.

You can email Saucedo at asaucedo@astate.edu or you can call her at (870) 680-8222.
