Hispanic heritage celebrated
Concert at Wega-Fremont High School
A local family sang, danced and played a variety of instruments during a recent performance at Weyauwega-Fremont High School.
“I’m super excited to have all the classes in the PAC today,” said Jodi Alix, the principal of the district’s middle and high schools.
The Gonzalez family is from Ecuador, and has always enjoyed music as a hobby.
“We’re very blessed. We have our children here. We want to share our culture,” said Segundo Gonzalez.
Some members of the family live in the Weyauwega area and others in the Waupaca area.
“I came to study at the University of Minnesota in 1993,” he said.
Gonzelez did so for a master’s degree in animal science.
After completing the degree, he began his career in the field and moved to the area about eight years ago.
He has a small dairy farm.
His siblings moved here as well.
The performances – one for the high school students and another for the middle school students – were coordinated by the high school’s Spanish classes and Spanish Club.
The Gonazlez family has performed as Los Inkas/Amaru.
