As we celebrate the holidays, let me be the first to share my appreciation for the incredible team of educators and staff who create the core of our community at Rio Hondo College.
These dedicated individuals commit their time and energy not only to the ongoing education of our students, but also to ensuring our College provides every foreseeable opportunity for those students.
This month’s update captures just a few of those efforts that span the spectrum of our mission: Faculty and staff collaborated to create a new major in cybersecurity, a quickly growing professional field; they are helping students map their college careers through our Avance program; they are training skilled firefighters and police officers; and they are being honored for connecting students with financial aid resources.
In addition to this, our students honored alumni veterans and an alumni veteran helped donate Thanksgiving meals to veteran students – illuminating the circle of care that is so characteristic of our College community.
So, on behalf of these dedicated staff and faculty members, let me wish all members of our extended community the happiest of holidays and thank you for making a difference every day.
