Velia Lozano
Facilities Services 

During Hispanic heritage month (Sept 15-Oct 15), Velia participated in an evening program after work hours where she made homemade enchiladas and interacted with many of the student attendees, some meeting Velia for the first time. Some students stayed after the event as they became aware Velia ability to speak Spanish and wanted to spend some more time talking with her.

On a more recent occasion, Velia was complimented by another student for helping them study and practice for their Spanish course. They said, "if it wasn't for my conversations with Velia in Spanish, I don't think I would have passed my Spanish test."

Velia continuously finds ways to connect with students, faculty and staff members through her use of language, joyful interactions and genuinely positive attitude. She does all of this on top of her regular duties of maintaining a clean student center. Velia for sure Makes A Difference at MSU!
