Robert D. Graham, Instructional Assistant
It is a privilege to serve Rio Hondo College as EMEC’s Instructional Assistant. The primary services offered are meant to highlight, present, and advocate Rio Hondo’s wealth of academic support services that help students with both their academic and personal goals. As an alumni of Rio Hondo College, my greatest joy is helping others find their own unique path to something better for themselves, and those they care for through learning. Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions you need an answer to, and we’ll work together to find the solutions that lead to success when it matters most.
The EMEC staff welcomes you to our campus. If you have any questions, please come in to the Administration Office, we will be happy to assist you.
