Cyber Security

Eight teams of high school students from throughout the state took part in the first California Cyber Security Challenge in SCC’s City Cafe on June 29.
The students represented schools from San Diego, North Hollywood, the Bay Area and Sacramento. Their challenge was to prevent hackers from disrupting computer code through various means.
Thanks to the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) for sponsoring the event and bringing it to Sacramento City College.

SAGE begins with two (2) exciting weeks on the main campus beginning August 1, 2016.

A cohort of at least 60 Latino/a students will be selected. They will join a learning community of like-minded students with similar career interests. Mentoring, one-on-one counseling and all the academic direction to be a successful student will be part of the SAGE experience!

Got your 6

Got Your Six is a vet-to-vet mentoring program at SCC.

In the military, “Got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” The saying originated with World War I fighter pilots referencing a pilot’s backside as being the six o’clock position. It is now a ubiquitous term in the military that highlights the loyalty and cooperation found in military culture. At Sacramento City College we carry on this commitment of helping veterans by providing a support system that allows veteran students to move forward in accomplishing their personal and academic goals.

A Vet to Vet mentoring program is key to helping new veteran students overcome challenges such as meeting academic expectations, establishing balances between academic and life responsibilities, relating to non-veteran students, and coping with service-related injuries.

Bridge dedication

Interim President Michael Poindexter helped inaugurate, dedicate and celebrate the opening of the $11-million bike/pedestrian bridge behind SCC on May 25 during an evening ceremony with the City of Sacramento and project engineers.
The bridge spans over the Sacramento RT Light Rail station immediately east of campus and the Union Pacific railroad tracks, and it links the Curtis Park neighborhood with the college and Land Park.
About 300 people, many on various forms of bicycle, participated in the opening, and they walked or rode across the bridge for the first time.

Kinders to college

More than 80 kindergarten students from Stonegate Elementary School attended their first day of college on May 20, thanks to a great partnership between SCC, Washington Unified School District and the Yolo County Office of Education.
The students were treated to lessons in health, art, ecology, fire science, police science and robotics during the morning-long event. In addition, they met Hughie the Panther, and West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon.
This is the second straight year SCC has hosted this event.

McCarty Puente

Sacramento’s Assemblymember, Kevin McCarty, stopped by the SCC Puente class on Thursday, May 12, to help honor Latino/a students – and pick up an honor himself.

McCarty was presented with the Del Mero Corazon Award from Jane Allsop of U.C. Berkeley’s Puente Project office, for his contribution to state education policy. MCcarty told the students that education – from preschool through college – is his most important issue and the issue he believes is most important for the future of Sacramento and California.

In addition, SCC student Francisca Garcia was presented with a $500 scholarship from the statewide Puente Project. Congratulations!
