KENNEWICK, WA - Families and Educators celebrated some of Kennewick's best Spanish speaking students Thursday night.

"Gigantic Thursday" is an annual event hosted by high school students from all over the district that are members of the Alas Club.

The Alas Club is a program that teaches students leadership skills.

The students invite their families to be more involved.

"This event is important because it brings families closer together so parents get more involved in student's education. It brings families together in general and they have a good time, see shows, dance and all that," said Kennewick High School Senior Yennifer Guzman.

The night featured a career fair, dance performances and motivational speakers all set to look like one of Latin America's most popular variety shows.
