Just as my family and those scholarship donors provided a way for me to pursue my dreams, the San Jacinto College Foundation also provides funding for so many students in our community. Through the funds donated, students who may not have an option for college are given that hope…that option to pursue their dream.
I meet people in our community who dream of keeping our community vibrant and thriving; a place where we are all proud to live and work. The Foundation is committed to raising funds for scholarships to assist our students with their educational aspirations. The work of the Foundation also provides funding for programs so the College can implement student success strategies and enhance its educational offerings. Through these efforts to create an educated local workforce, we improve our community so the collective dreams we pursue can be realized.
I started my tenure with San Jacinto College as a Foundation Board member in 1996. Although my role with the College through the years has changed, I am still passionate about the work we are doing through the Foundation, and its profound effect on the lives of our students and our community. The generous and giving spirit of the friends of San Jacinto College and the community continues to impact lives.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many people.
