Dan McCarty and Puente

Assemblymember McCarty Honors SCC Puente Students

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!
