Jesus Debate Draws Big Crowd

Wednesday night’s forum in the Student Center, entitled “The Jesus Debate: Lord or Legend” drew a standing room only crowd of more than 200 people, who listened to two noted authors debate the authenticity of the New Testament Gospels, and ultimately if Jesus of Nazareth ever truly existed.

Author and filmmaker John Christy presented the Christian side of the debate, while author David Fitzgerald argued on behalf of atheists. Sacramento City College’s student clubs, SSA-SCC and the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, presented the lively debate.

It was broadcast live on www.dogmadebate.com and videotaped for future broadcast on cable channels 15 and 16, through the Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium.

24 Women Students Recognized for ‘Outstanding’ Perseverance

Twenty-four of Sacramento City College’s women students have been recognized for their perseverance in continuing their education despite personal challenges.

The “Outstanding Women Student” award recipients and their friends, families, counselors and others who have supported them were treated to a lunch on Friday, March 27 at the SCC campus. The recipients were called to the stage to receive their certificates get their photos taken.

The award recipients are: Juanita Alvarado, Claudia Bravo, Amy Chan, Jhermaine DeMayo, Caroline D’Souza, Vanessa Duenas, Rebecca Dutra, Hubbis Fabian, Monserrat Vazquez-Fonseca, Elke Gomez, Joanna Gross, Melanya Gudzeva, Arlene Lopez, Diane Mitchell, Saleema Muhammad, Christina Parra, Juanita Patlan, Rayelle Ross, Stephanie Thompson, Marianna Sousa, Christine Wiebe, Lauren Winkler, Fama Rahima Ziyarmal, and Mee Xiong.

They were selected for their outstanding academic achievement, maintaining a 3.5 GPA or higher, while excelling in community service, venturing into traditionally male-dominated careers or gaining recognition in athletics — all while overcoming personal obstacles.

“Instead of disability, they demonstrated the ability to face challenges head on–they are truly risk-takers,” said Dr. Debra Luff, SCC’s Associate Vice President of Enrollment/Student Services. “As I look into the eyes of the future, it looks, very, very bright.”

Since the program’s inception in 1997, more than 700 women have been awarded.
