Wiley College and the International Club celebrated International Week this month to shine a light on the institution's diversity. On April 5 the College hosted its annual International Week Chapel Service, with Wiley alumnus Rev. Leonardo Haro of First United Methodist Church of Grand Prairie, Texas, sharing a message about the importance of students remembering and honoring their roots, as well as respecting and appreciating the differences and similarities of all cultures. Other activities that were held as part of International Week included the annual Taste of Nations Food Fest on April 7 and the crowning of the new Miss International, Freida Ekweme of Nigeria, on April 8 during the Miss International Pageant.
