        Peralta Colleges Receive National Award on Behalf of the Laney Tennis Association

        4 March 2016

        IMG_0431

        At the Peralta College Board of Trustees meeting on February 23, 2016, Henry Chang, President of the Laney Tennis Association, presented the four-college district with the Association’s award for national recognition as “Organization of the Year” by the Northern California branch of the United States Tennis Association.

        The Peralta Trustees welcomed the award and noted that previously, Jowel C. Laguerre, Ph.D., Chancellor for the Peralta Community College District, was on hand to acknowledge the Laney Tennis Association’s award during the USTA Northern California 2016 “Awards Celebrating Excellence in Service (ACES) Luncheon” that took place on January 31, 2016, at the Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton, California.

        A staple of the tennis community in Oakland and the surrounding area, Laney Tennis Association has grown from a small group of friends to hundreds of members. The association, housed at Laney College and College of Alameda, and directed by the husband-and-wife team of Henry and Connie Chang, embraces beginner-level members and works to keep tennis accessible to all who want to play. Laney Tennis Association is the embodiment of a community tennis association in its goal to create a close-knit, family atmosphere based on the benefit of playing tennis.

        The pioneers of the Laney Tennis Association have grown the game of tennis through their coaching, specializing in beginners with good basics, and their love of the community in Oakland. Henry Chang, a former member of the Oakland City Council and former Vice Mayor of Oakland, along with his wife, Connie, who is Secretary/Treasurer keep growing Laney Tennis, creating new opportunities for its players, not only in developing their skills, but also using the game to travel abroad, stay healthy and, above all, create new friendships.

        “This was a proud experience for all of us to have accepted the honor and to witness our District recognized for its work with the community,” said Jowel C. Laguerre, Ph.D., Chancellor of the Peralta Community College District.

        “I would like to thank Dr. and Mrs. Chang for all that they have done for our colleges and our tennis players throughout our community. It is really an honor to have LTA as part of the Peralta Family,” Chancellor Laguerre added.

        The Laney Tennis Association, which is a 501c3 Tax Exempt organization, recently moved to a new home at the College of Alameda while construction takes place at Laney College.  

        The United States Tennis Association is the national governing body for the sport of tennis and the recognized leader in promoting and developing the sport’s growth on every level in the United States, from local communities to the crown jewel of the professional game, the US Open.

        USTA Northern California proudly honors those who work to promote and develop the game of tennis with the ACES, which are presented each year to celebrate players, program participants, volunteers and organizations for their continued commitment and service to tennis. The award for “Organization of the Year” is bestowed upon a USTA Nor Cal member organization for it’s service to the tennis community, for service to its own membership or constituency and for service to the game of tennis.

            Cy-GulassaAt its regular meeting on January 26, 2016, the Board of Trustees for the Peralta Community College Districted nominated fellow Board member Cy Gulassa, Area 6, to serve on the California Community College Trustees (CCCT) Board of the Community College League of California (CCLC) for 2016.

            Gulassa, a long-time advocate for California’s community colleges, has been a trustee at the Peralta Colleges since 2004. A graduate of UC Berkeley with a M.A. in English, Gulassa has taught at institutions such as Frostburg State University in Maryland and the Philadelphia College of Art, as well as teaching English at De Anza College for 30 years. He served as president of the Foothil-De Anza District Faculty Association for fifteen years and founded the Bay Faculty Association.

            The CCCT Board helps make policy for the CCLC and advances public education with legislative and public support for community colleges. It provides education, information and help to California community college governing boards and supports community colleges throughout the state.

            “It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to play a role in CCCT’s coming of age,” said Gulassa. “CCCT is asserting itself and becoming a strong education partner in the state, meeting frequently with CEOs to develop joint initiatives and focusing on student equity and success programs.”

            “CCCT is seeking wider membership on national trustee organizations and has won the right of trustees to serve on accreditation teams, a major step forward,” he added.

                          Peralta Trustees to Honor David Harper, First African American Jury Foreman of a Major Murder Trial

                          6 November 2015

                           

                          david-harper-circa-681At its regular board meeting on Tuesday, November 10, at 7:00 p.m., the Board of Trustees of the Peralta Community College District, will honor David Harper, the first African American jury foreman in a major murder trial in the United States, on the same day as the Mayor of the City of Oakland proclaims November 10th as “David Harper Day.” The meeting, at 333 East 8th Street in Oakland, is open to members of the public. Media are also invited to attend.

                          Both David Harper (pictured, circa 1968) and a representative from the Office of Mayor Libby Schaaf will be in attendance at the meeting. Board President Meredith Brown will make special remarks noting Harper’s pioneering role in the 1968 murder trial of Black Panther founder Huey Newton for the death of a white Oakland policeman. The Mayor’s Proclamation will be read at the meeting, which takes place at 333 East 8th Street in Oakland, and will be televised live on Peralta TV, cable channels 27 or 28 in the East Bay.

                          Harper’s role as jury foreman in 1968 remains important even today. In many jurisdictions prosecutors routinely excluded all black jurors from juries “of one’s peers” in death penalty cases.  This month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the constitutionality of an all-white jury that condemned a black teenager to death. In 1968, banker David Harper risked his life to serve as foreman of the polarizing Huey Newton murder trial, held in Oakland just months after Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination sparked riots in cities across country. The Newton jury reached a verdict under Harper’s leadership that kept peace when widespread rioting was expected. That groundbreaking jury also led to far broader inclusion of women and minorities in juries across the country.

                          “Peralta is pleased to play a role in the recognition of David Harper’s contribution to the American justice system,” said Peralta Community College District Board President, Meredith Brown.

                          “We are an institution of higher learning that serves a diverse population, and the historical and educational aspects of the jury reform movement sparked by the Newton Trial speak to our mission to sustainably enhance the region’s human, economic, environmental and social development and to develop leaders who create opportunities and transform lives,” President Brown said.

                          “David Harper has contributed to Peralta’s mission through his participation in the justice system and use of the knowledge and skills that he gained through his education. David Harper is a meaningful role model for our students,” she added.

                          The 1968 Newton trial is the subject of a book,”The Sky’s The Limit,” by retired Oakland Judge Lise Pearlman, who is working on a documentary about the trial, and who will also be in attendance at the meeting.

                            Peralta Community College District Receives $500,000 Grant For Career Technical Education

                            26 October 2015

                            PCCD_Announcement

                            CTEOAKLAND, Calif., October 26, 2015 On Tuesday, October 20, at its regular meeting, the Board of Trustees for the Peralta Community College District authorized the acceptance of a Career Technical Education (CTE) Enhancement Fund sub-grant of $505,052 (40% allocation) from Cabrillo Community College District, which is the Bay Area Community College Consortium’s (BACCC) fiscal agent that is responsible for the distribution of CTE Enhancement Funds from the California Community College State Chancellor’s Office.

                            The Career Technical Education (CTE) Enhancement Fund was created by a one-time allocation from the state’s FY 2014-15 budget for California Community Colleges. The purpose is to develop, enhance, retool and expand quality career technical education offerings that build upon an existing community college regional capacity to respond to local labor market needs.

                            Acceptance of funds by each of The Peralta Colleges (Berkeley City College, College of Alameda and Laney and Merritt Colleges in Oakland) from the CTE Enhancement Allocation will greatly enrich the educational mission of the district that serves the cities of Albany, Alameda, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland and Piedmont.

                            Many of its over 30,000 students attend the Peralta Colleges – Berkeley City College, College of Alameda, Merritt College and Laney College – in order to pursue certificates in Career Technical Education and fast-track to the every-changing job market.

                            This sub-grant will make a significant difference in the quantity and variety of CTE classes offered by the four-college district.

The purpose of this committee is to ensure that bond and tax dollars generously given to the District by the electorate are spent to enhance education at the four Peralta Colleges – Laney College, Merritt College, College of Alameda and Berkeley City College.

                              The Citizens Oversight Committee membership consists of a minimum of eight (8) members appointed by the Board of Trustees from candidates submitting written applications, and is comprised of: one a member active in a business organization representing the business community located in the District; a member active in a senior citizen’s organization; a member active in a bona-fide taxpayer’s organization; a member who is a student and currently enrolled in the District and active in a community college group, such as student government; a member active in the support and organization of the community college or the community colleges of the district; and two members of the community at-large.

                              Abuyen is already a Student Trustee for the Peralta Community College District Board of Trustees. Previously, he has served on the Associated Students of the College of Alameda (ASCOA) as the Communication Officer, and then as the Vice President of Operations during the following term.

                              “I feel that my education must serve a deeper purpose than just meeting a deadline for a class,” said Abuyen. This motivated student has a strong desire to serve his community, which is reflected in his plans to major in Community and Regional Development when he transfers to UC Davis after completing his studies at College of Alameda. Adrien also plans to attend law school and hopes to one-day work in youth advocacy.
