Hispanic Heritage Month Keynote Speaker is Shayla Rivera

In celebration of the Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, the Diversity Resource Center is pleased to announce that the National Hispanic Heritage Month Keynote Speaker is Shayla Rivera.

Shayla Rivera is an aerospace engineer and former rocket scientist with NASA turned salesperson, corporate trainer, and now international keynote speaker, TEDx presenter, TV and radio host, emcee/host, comedienne, actor, writer, producer, seminar facilitator, panel moderator, and, as of 2017, Director of the ENGR[x] program and Professor of Practice with the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University.

However, none of these labels tells you much about her. She best describes herself as a spiritually irreverent Mystic and Awareness Expert, or what many would call a Renaissance Woman. 

This event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 1, 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the Jensen Grand Concert Hall, Stephens Performing Arts Center. Admission is free to all ISU students, staff, faculty, community members, and high school students from Pocatello.
