Altars build a bridge to the dead

Traditional mexican Day of the dead altar with sugar skulls and candles

Students in the Mexican-American Club at Southwest High School come together to build altars to display from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 for Dia de los Muertos to honor the memory of the person who is being represented in the altar.

Genaro Diaz is the advisor of the Mexican-American Club and also teaches Spanish 3, 4, and International Baccalaureate Spanish. Diaz has kept the tradition of Dia de los Muertos and celebrated for many years.
