Remembering 9/11

All of the campus’ Remembering 9/11 events were a great success thanks to the College’s Veteran Services and Student Engagement & Activities departments. The Pasadena American Legion Post 521 and the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 521 provided six $100 scholarships to two student veterans at the Central, North and South Campuses.

On Monday, September 11, 2017, AL Post 521 Commander Hubert Winters, ALA Unit 521 President Diana King, and ALA District 22 President Carol Chance Fleury made presentations on each campus at their respective Remembering 9/11 events.

The two Central Campus winners of the AL and ALA $100 scholarships are Arturo Guerra and Victor DeLeon.  Arturo Guerra is a Communications major and a US Navy veteran. Victor DeLeon, an Army veteran, is a culinary arts major.

Houston Green, one of the recipients of the $100 scholarship, is a mechanical engineer major and an Air Force veteran. The other recipient at South Campus is Katrina Parker-Hall; she is a nursing major and a Navy veteran.

The two winners on North Campus of $100 scholarships are Adam Solis and Dominique Walker. Adam Solis is an Army veteran and is planning a career as a paramedic.  Dominique Walker is a Navy veteran and is preparing to be a social worker.
