El Centro High School Alumnus Humberto Rincon Featured in 1st Book on Latino Innovation
Graduate of El Centro High School Bring Pride to Community as News Breaks of His Academic and Professional Success—Has Become Role Model to Students

Rincon’s journey caught the eye of author Graciela Tiscareño-Sato, who wrote Latinnovating:
Rincon holds a Bachelor of Science in both Mechanical Engineering and Material Science from UC Davis. He also received his Master in Mechanical Engineering Design, along with executive post-graduate training, from Stanford University on a full scholarship from IBM. His solid work ethic, developed as a child, has served him well his entire life. When he first attended college, he struggled at first with some of his classes. Because of this struggle, he had the idea to create a society still in place at Davis today—CALESS (Chicano and Latino Engineers and Scientists), which unites students studying these disciplines and enables them to help one another academically. Over time, he would also organize the first ever Latino engineering and science symposium at the university and develop a network across academic and Latino communities.
Latinnovating was recently launched at the Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit. Prior to its release, the book received congressional attention, due to its unique focus. It has been endorsed by more than two dozen individuals throughout the social justice, educational and environmental communities.
