An update from Sergio, a senior majoring in communication studies and Spanish:
Learning about Jubilee Park this semester is an extraordinary experience. I find it fascinating that there are community centers that serve their community to the full extent.
In our class we were divided into small groups and each given a task to research. My group ended up with the historical section of Jubilee Park. The history alone was fascinating. I’m not a Dallas native, so everything including the significance of Big Tex to that area was new to me.
I’ve learned how much the Fair Park area has changed, especially the demographics. I’ve spoken to individuals who testify to the wonderful opportunities Jubilee Park offers to them and their families. Testimonies such as the ones I’ve heard enhance the project in a positive manner because I know I’m working with an organization that devoutly serves its community and has the community’s best interest at heart.
What I hope to continue to accomplish throughout this project is learning more about its rich history and how much the area has changed throughout the years.
