PCC Advisory Committees and Dr. Rocha

Saturday members of the College President's African American, Asian American, and Latino Advisory Committees met at PCC. The groups gathered together to discuss what might be some issues that are of import to our students and their respective communities that either contribute or challenge their success at PCC. And what can be done expand on the success or ameliorate the most negative things that limit their success.

Well, that may not have been the exact question that was asked but you get the gist.

While being at PCC at 8:30 in the morning was not my ideal start to the weekend, being there with all these caring, thoughtful folks, who perhaps a decade ago wouldn't not have been invited to such a function, did my heart good.

And gave me just bit of hope that sweetened my last cup of morning coffee.

    Are you familiar with the group?

  2. Yes, I was. Which is to say, that I knew about them when I was initially doing research into Latino history. Over the years I'd forgotten about the organization. Thanks for reminding me about them.
