The 2017 Hispanic Heritage Luncheon, hosted by the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Wednesday, October 11th, from 11:30 a.m.to 1:00 p.m. at the LCU Baker Conference Center.

This year’s featured speaker will be Steve Gomez, head women’s basketball coach at Lubbock Christian University, the 2016 NCAA Division II National Champions.

Gomez has been at the helm of the women’s basketball program at LCU for 10 seasons, and has changed the foundation of the program during his tenure there.

Along with winning the national championship in 2016, Gomez claimed WBCA NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year honors as well.

He also spent a portion of the offseason as a court coach at the 2016 USA Basketball Women’s U17 World Championship Team Trials in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Gomez will share a little bit about his background and how it shaped him while he delivers a message emphasizing what unifies us more than what sets us apart.

Tickets for the luncheon are $40. Chamber members get a discounted price of $30.

The deadline to register is 5 p.m. on Wed., Oct. 4th.
