The Sacramento City College photography and journalism departments will honor the memory of Emma Foley, student photographer, tutor and photo editor of The Express newspaper, with a show of her work opening Nov. 12.

The show opens with a 5:30 p.m. reception of Foley’s work on the second floor landing of the new Student Services building on campus, the new home to the college’s photo and journalism departments. It will run through 7:30 p.m. and feature 50 of Foley’s photographs as well as multimedia presentations about her work and written memories by her mother.

Foley, who died in an accident in July at age 20, was a City College student for two years. An accomplished photographer, she served as a tutor in photography classes and helped the department move into its new location over the summer. She was the photo editor of the Express newspaper for three semesters.

The photography and journalism departments hope to raise $5,000 to endow a scholarship in the name of Emma Foley. Those who donate $50 or more to the Emma Foley Memorial Scholarship will receive a print of their choice from the show.

The show will be on display on the second floor landing of the Student Services building through Dec. 17.

Health habits

Thanks to a $25,000 grant from the California Endowment, Sac City’s Allied Health Department will begin attending local fairs and community events to promote healthy lifestyles. Students will bring the message of water instead of soda, exercise, and dental health to residents of south Sacramento throughout the next several months.

The grant was obtained thanks to help from Los Rios Community College Trustee Deborah Ortiz, who has been a proponent of health information and education for many years.

The department held a kick-off event last week to get the word out to the college and community that it is ready to send our student army out to help teach people these valuable health lessons.
