Otero Junior College’s International Relations Organization will host its annual talent show on Wednesday, November 7 at 7 p.m. in OJC’s Ed Stafford Theatre. Admission is free and open to the public. This year, nine acts are being brought to the stage. The performers include singers, dancers, musicians, and actors.
 
According to Rochelle Wallace, director of International Programs at OJC, the annual event is an opportunity for the college’s international students to say ‘thank-you’ to the campus and community for the support and welcoming spirit the students feel when they arrive in La Junta.
 
“The La Junta community reaches out to make our students feel welcome in a variety of ways, including serving as host families to an international student, inviting students to special events in the community, and even simply offering a little direction to a student new to the area,” said Wallace. The talent show is our way of saying thank you by providing a night of talent and fun for the whole family.”
 
Entrants in the talent show will face a panel of judges and winners will receive prizes. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. For more information, contact Melaine Culver, International Relations activities coordinator, at 719-384-6804 or Melanie.Culver@ojc.edu.
