GROSSMONT COLLEGE–Some special guests helped the Grossmont College community celebrate Cinco de Mayo over the lunch hour. Media instructor Donald Harrison was there to take a few snapshots.

Performing on the quad was a mariachi band from Athulense, a town near Guadalajara in Jalisco State, and a group of folk dancers from the Atlacomulco in the Mexican state of Aguascaliente.

The dancers also happen to be foreign exchange students learning English at Grossmont as part of training to be ESL instructors in their native Mexico (more information in this Summit article).
