News and Events for the week of June 10

Good Monday Morning:

Thanks to everyone who participated and helped out at our 2019 Graduation last Tuesday. We had a record number turnout at the Greek of graduates and graduation participants. Thank you to all of you who helped to make it another memorable day for LACC. 

Surprise Scholarship Presentation at Los Angeles School of Global Studies

This past Saturday, 6/8, a surprise check was presented to Los Angeles School of Global Studies student Oswald Vazquez by LACC Foundation Executive Director Robert Schwartz and LACCD Trustee Andra Hoffman. Vazquez attended college classes at LACC while in high school and received a full scholarship to Harvard. LACC and LACCD combined to present a scholarship to Oswald at his high school graduation ceremony on Saturday. We hope the funds will provide an opportunity for Oswald to travel back home for the holidays.

Summer Session begins today, 6/10. If any students need help, please send them to the newly renovated Welcome Center located on the first floor of the Student Services building. Check out our website for a complete list of open classes.
