Others talk about giving back to their community. But you don't hear them talking about giving up what they've worked so hard to get. That's why Rene Trabanino's career plans are raising eyebrows this week at UCLA, where he graduates Saturday with top honors--and with unusual credentials. University lab work done by Trabanino has turned him into an expert in the field of protein research using a new technique called electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy.

"Homeward Bound" (June 18) filled me with inspiration and pride. As surprising as it may seem to most people, what Rene Trabanino chose as a career is nothing new. He is one of the growing number of Latino college graduates with prestigious educations under their belts who choose to give back to their community by the most direct means available, through pedagogical contact. I personally know UC Berkeley, Yale and Harvard graduates with undergraduate and graduate degrees who teach in the low-income communities in which they grew up. This commitment should not be questioned as a poor career choice; rather it should be revered and serve as an example of a growing social consciousness among Latino educators to change the status quo. I wholeheartedly believe that those of us who choose to be teachers are convinced that the social-economic future of our community largely depends on the loyalty and sincerity of our future endeavors.

In Bell Gardens, a new controversial rezoning map formed by the City Council could affect many residents. Its plans aim at decreasing the Bell Gardens population density, which is the second largest in Los Angeles County, due to overcrowded apartments and jumbles of houses. Recently, a petition was sent to the city clerk asking for a referendum, or vote, by the citizens regarding the rezoning ordinances. The referendum was rejected by the City Council. As a concerned 15-year-old Bell Gardens resident, I believe the rezoning ordinances are prospectively beneficial to businesses and companies which may use the cleared property.
