José Hernandez: A young Hispanic making education pay off


by William Wright of the Cleveland Daily Banner


The number of Hispanics ages 18 to 24 on U.S. college campuses grew by nearly a quarter, highlighting what The Associated Press called “a substantial and increasingly rapid demographic transition in higher education.”

José Hernandez, a student at Cleveland State Community College, is among the increasing Hispanic population to pursue higher education in America.

The industrious teenager has been enrolled in a Theocratic Ministry School of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Meigs County for years and links his comprehensive skills and study habits to a careful spiritual routine 52 weeks out of the year.

“The Theocratic Ministry School has helped me to focus and keep my mind open. I realize there’s always something for me to learn. It helps keep my mind active and to always keep trying to improve myself. It’s helping me be the best I can be. I thoroughly enjoy the ministry school,” he said.

While secular education is important to the studious young adult, Hernandez said the emphasis Jesus Christ put on one’s spiritual education, by taking in knowledge of God and Christ at John 17:3, was even more important to him.
