If you missed the Peralta Colleges 50th Anniversary celebrations over the summer, you can now watch video of the events on Peralta TV’s YouTube Channel by following the links below.
Commemoration Day was held on July 1, 2014, 50 years to the day of the founding of the District on July 1, 1964. There was an inspiring keynote address by State Chancellor Brice Harris as well as remarks by local mayors, Peralta trustees, Chancellor José M. Ortiz, our college presidents and others, all hosted by Burt Dragin of Laney College. Don’t miss the heartfelt rendition of ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ sung by our very own Rosemary Vazquez. A time capsule made by the Laney College Carpentry students highlighted the festivities and was installed to memorialize this once-in-a-lifetime milestone.
There was also a Community Festival held on Saturday, June 28, to celebrate Peralta’s 50th Anniversary. The day was filled with music, dance, college booths, great food and all things Peralta. It was a wonderful community turnout that celebrated the Peralta Community College District’s golden anniversary!
Peralta TV also produced a tribute to our 50 years of serving students. You can view all the videos here:
Enjoy the celebration and happy 50th Anniversary Peralta!
