On April 4th and 5th, 2014, Saint Ignatius will have the privilege of being visited by legendary Broadway superstar Rita Moreno. Moreno is best known for her breakthrough role as Anita in West Side Story. Moreno is the only Hispanic to have won all four major American entertainment awards.

Latino Summit welcomes Rita Moreno.

 Ms. Moreno will be speaking at the Latin Youth Summit on April 5, 2014. As Mr. Balano stated, “Given the theme of the summit, I couldn't think of a better person to speak to our youth, to provide historical context, perspective, and the power of perseverance. We are really fortunate and blessed that she has so graciously agreed to speak to our community."


 It was a fortunate coincidence that SI will perform West Side Story for the spring musical.
