Dean Benjamin Goldstein from the CMU and other areas is leaving LATTC to take a leadership position with Santa Rosa Community College. His fellow deans and co-workers joined him for some cake to express thanks for his work. We’ll miss you Benjamin! Always remember us.
The Consumer Resource Center opened officially today in Redwood Hall. It’s part of the Work Source Center. This is a real location for anyone, students or staff, to come by with questions about various consumer issues like tenant’s rights, immigration policies, funeral arrangements and just about anything else facing people. Check them out.
There isn’t an official culinary arts/professional baking graduation, but every year these students like to get together at the end of the semester and celebrate another year of serving this campus. This semester they gathered at the K-Mall stairs to wish each other well, and to thank each other for what has been a tremendous year of work. Two longtime members of the culinary arts faculty also are retiring and students wanted to say their goodbyes. Chef Eddie Sims and Chef Don Warriner are heading off to retirement and will no doubt be in a kitchen somewhere remembering the great times and great students at Trade Tech. We wish them well.
We held the EOPS Honors Ceremony today in AH101. The program honored those in the program who are graduating or transferring after this semester. For many, this college experience has changed their lives and this program has been the catalyst in completing that education. We congratulate all students in the EOPS program, and for those moving on, we wish them the very best. The program featured two LATTC alums who have been successful in their careers. Both encouraged students to take on whatever they want to do.
