CISCO Group

On Thursday, July 14th, the students of the West Sacramento Center (WSC) Readiness Summer Program were hosted by CISCO Systems in San Jose, California. Students were introduced to a variety of career options, internship opportunities, a guided facility tour, and a variety of technologies developed by CISCO Systems.

Students were accompanied by SCC Counselor Mauricio Gonzalez and Student Personnel Assistant (SPA) Natalya Lodzhanskiy.  Lunch was provided by CISCO Systems. The college and career trips are part of this year’s 4-week WSC Summer Readiness Program funded by the SCC Equity Plan. Students are also required to enroll in HCD-310 and LTAT-92.  Additional trips to UC, Davis, Sacramento State, SCC Main campus, and SMUD are scheduled for later this month.

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.

West Sac Veterans

The West Sacramento Center has partnered with YoloArts and the Yolo County Veterans Service Office to host a three-city traveling art exhibit celebrating veterans.

“Positive Reflections: From Combat to Community” showcases works inspired and created by veterans.

The goal of the exhibition is to contribute to the public understanding of veterans’ experiences and honor them as they reintegrate from combat to civilian life.

On opening day at the West Sacramento Center, there was a Veterans Resource Fair from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., accompanied by blues music by Joe Lev and Friends. An artists reception was held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and featured a reading of “Positive Reflections,” a commissioned poem by Davis Poet Laureate Andy Jones.

The project is funded by a Veterans in the Arts grant award to YoloArts from the California Arts Council.

Please check out some photos from the event on our SCC slide show page.

Kinders 2 College lo res

The Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium has produced a video about the “Kinders Go To College” event at Sacramento City College’s West Sacramento Center.

The program drew 90 kindergarten students from Riverbank Elementary School in West Sacramento, as well as junior high and high school students from area schools, to the West Sacramento Center on May 22 to get a glimpse of college life.

The students were treated to a number of special college “classes” (15 minute workshops) in fields such as dental assisting and hygiene, nursing, art, personal finance, and robotics.

“We need to increase the college-going rate in West Sacramento and Yolo County,” said Art Pimentel, Dean of SCC’s West Sacramento Center. “The earlier we start the process of getting students to know about college, the better we do at getting them here when the time is right.”

Sacramento City College partnered with the Yolo County Office of Education on this unique program.

In addition to the classes, students received a special T-shirt honoring them as the high school Class of 2027, a backpack and other goodies from SCC and the Yolo County education office.
