Goshen couple pushing for Latin American culture center
A couple in Goshen is starting a grassroots movement to generate support for a Latin-American Culture and Language Center in Goshen.
Nayo Ulloa and Heather Bridger-Ulloa came to Goshen two and a half years ago, and found a circle of friends who wanted to teach their kids about their multicultural heritage. The husband and wife then began planning for a Latin American culture and language center where families would be able to help their children learn and appreciate their background.
Nayo Ulloa, who was born and raised in Peru, is a professional musician and adjunct professor who teaches Latin studies and Spanish at Goshen College. Heather Bridger-Ulloa is a trained interpreter and a translator who is fluent in both English and Spanish.
