KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -- First Lady Jill Biden made in the metro Tuesday afternoon and toured a Kansas City, Kansas, school in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Biden visited El Centro Academy For Children for conversations and listening sessions with the Hispanic community around 1:30 p.m. El Centro is a preschool to sixth grade school with a predominantly Latino student population. About 30% of KCK's population is Hispanic or Latino, according to U.S. Census data.

Biden joined small business administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman and U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS) for the "charla," which is Spanish for "chat," with those at the school.

This is Biden's second visit to the metro. She made a stop at Metropolitan Community College in May as part of the COVID vaccination efforts. 

For more coverage of the First Lady's tour of the school and her arrival at Wheeler Airport in downtown Kansas City, watch KCTV5 News at 4, 5, and 6 p.m.
