From TV to school board to Latinos Count
By: Dirk Rowley
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – During national Hispanic Heritage month, we are taking time to learn more about those who helped shape this nation, the state, and northeast Indiana.
Steve Corona likes to downplay the contributions he made to diversity in Fort Wayne but he broke several barriers, including the city’s first Hispanic TV newscaster and first Hispanic member of the Fort Wayne Community School Board.
Corona has taken what he’s learned and tried to help the next generation of Hispanic youth.
“Here in town I’ve been involved with Latinos Count, a non-profit organization and what we try to do is help Latino youth figure out what they’re going to do after high school. What is your exit strategy, I ask them, as to what you’re going to do after high school.”
