Hispanic Heritage Month: Alumnus Salvador "Chava" Mercado-Cano '06

The University of San Diego, in partnership with Entravision, is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by spotlighting members of our amazing alumni.

In the accompanying video, learn more about 2006 USD College of Arts and Sciences alumnus Salvador “Chava” Mercado-Cano and his motivational story. A window fell 10 stories onto him as he was walking down a street. During his rehabilitation, he met a mountain climber who inspired him to consider an act of gratitude. His quest? To climb Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro. 

The video, presented in Spanish, is accompanied by English language subtitles. It is being shown on Univision during this celebratory month of recognition.
