Latina housekeepers celebrated at multidisciplinary event

There's one message Dr. Begona Caballero-Garcia shares with all of her students.

"People shouldn't be valued based on their job, title, wealth or position. Their value is determined by how they make other people feel," says Caballero-Garcia, a Spanish professor at Wofford and 2023 recipient of the South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities' Excellence in Teaching award.

Caballero-Garcia and Diana Farfan Valente, a sculptor and ceramics instructor at Wofford, put this principle into practice on Wednesday, Nov. 29, by honoring a few of the college's unsung heroes - its Latina housekeepers. The group was recognized at an event showcasing the works of 10 talented female artists and writers from diverse cultural backgrounds.
