Town Hall Meeting at Fremont High School 11/15

8 November 2017

A Community College Education and Your Pathway to a Career is in the Neighborhood!

 

In partnership with Oakland Unified School District, Peralta Community College District Chancellor Jowel Laguerre and Board Trustees are excited to host its next Chancellor’s Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, November 15th, at Fremont High School, 4610 Foothill Blvd, off High Street in Oakland from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm.  

 

The Chancellor’s Town Hall Meeting, a series of community conversations, showcase Peralta Colleges’ wealth of career technical and academic programs, throughout the Peralta Colleges district community areas.  At the Town Hall Meetings, a suite of enrollment services and representatives are also on-hand to provide information on financial aid, admissions, counseling and more, in an effort to assist potential students to navigate the process with ease.
 

Last month Governor Jerry Brown signed new legislation to make community college free for all full-time students in California. Peralta Colleges and Oakland Unified School District’s collaborative work aims to ensure our communities are aware of the new law to increase the number of students who enroll in community college full-time, as well as the number of people who are prepared for careers that support their families.

 

Light food, networking and information table highlighting career technical and trades programs will begin at 5:30 pm in the Cafe.   The program presentations will take place in the Auditorium with OUSD staff and a conversation with Peralta Chancellor Jowel Laguerre and Peralta alumni.

 

The town hall meeting is free and open to the public.  To RSVP, visit www.experienceperaltafhs.eventbrite.com.

Outstanding Grads: Samantha Rushing, BCC President’s Medallion Award Winner

16 May 2016

Samanta Rushing EditSamantha Rushing is this year’s President’s Medallion Award winner from Berkeley City College.

Rushing knew early that she wanted to be an English teacher. Growing up just outside Stockton, she wished her teachers were more inspiring. At age 16, she decided that teaching would be her professional goal and, although there were a few bumps along the road, that goal has never waivered.

At Berkeley City College, Rushing maintained a 3.92 GPA. She credits the EOPS and CalWORKs programs for helping her realize her goal. And it helped that BCC teachers, staff and administrators genuinely care about students and do everything in their power to help them stay on the right path, Rushing says.

The future teacher was hired as an English tutor her first semester at BCC and has helped dozens of students since. She has also served as the Secretary of the Associated Students at Berkeley City College. A single parent of a four-year-old girl, Rushing was accepted to UC Santa Cruz, Sacramento State University and California State University, East Bay, and she is waiting to hear from UC Davis and UC Berkeley.
