Dear SHPE Stakeholders and Members,
Every day I meet individuals who truly care about SHPE, have dedicated many years to the organization, love and want SHPE to be truly successful. These individuals are willing to roll up their sleeves to make changes in a positive and cooperative environment. Today, those who serve on the National Board of Directors (NBOD), Industrial PartnerSHPE Council (IPC), Management Committee and national staff do so because they see a challenge and are willing to bring people together to resolve it, see an opportunity and inspire others to join in the effort. SHPE has made phenomenal strides because of the cooperative nature of how the organization operates today. If you are one of those ambassadors for SHPE, I urge you to distribute this letter and the State of SHPE newsletter to anyone willing to listen. Many successes are to be celebrated.

Ay Mijo/a Book Series
The Ay Mijo/a Book Series is a great resource for libraries, schools, churches, YMCAs, boys and girls clubs and personal libraries. The books are a GREAT way to motivate young students to be the next generation engineer.
The Ay Mijo/a Book Series starts off with 24-short inspirational stories of Hispanic female and male engineers as they grew up with their families, spending special holidays at home as they grew to become one of America's most successful engineers serving as a role-model for many other children. (More Info)
Books are available online for a low price of $14.95 and $17.95. Proceeds from the sale of these books go to the SHPE Foundation Scholarship Endowment, which supports college scholarships for deserving Hispanic students.
