Speaker Lt. Colonel Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch

Saint Michael’s College presents the 22nd Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation with Lt. Colonel Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch, nationally recognized advocate for immigrant rights, speaking on “The Role of Individual Ethics and History in the Pursuit of Justice” at 4:30 p.m. in the Saint Michael’s College Chapel. Born and raised in a small barrio in the border town of Laredo, Texas, Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch, became the highest ranking Hispanic woman in the Combat Support Field of the U.S. Army, and yet decided to retire to fulfill her mother’s dying wish that she return to her roots to become a community leader. Thus instead of taking up an army command post, in 1996 she began operating Educational Achievement Services, with great distinction, winning numerous awards, including being called one of the “100 Most Influential Hispanics in America,” and being including among women “who’ve got the brains, the guts, and the drive to change the world.”
