Viewpoints’ special centennial issue

Well here it is!

As the event got closer and closer, I started to get this idea in my head but at the same time…I thought about something Jorge said at a JACC a few semesters back that really stuck with me.

“Leave a legacy,” he said.

While that was something I mentioned to my staff it was not my main focus.

You only get to celebrate a centennial once and for as much as I had heard about this centennial upon my arrival as a student here at Riverside City College…I knew I would be foolish to ignore it.

Along the way some valuable lessons were learned and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

I am so proud of my staff and the way they handled this issue overall. I also thought it was a positive experience to see the college as a whole rally behind this issue and spreading the word about our coverage.

For as much as we tried to provide a service to the RCC community, they were just as giving with what they did for us.

I want to thank the members of my staff that went out of their way and canceled plans they may have had to contribute to this issue especially after we had already put together a print edition earlier this week.

These moments are what make my job enjoyable and worth doing.

Thank you all for your support whether you are a member of my staff or someone who has been in my corner for a long long time!

Shoutout to Alexis, Laura, Crystal, Tyler, Victor, Stacy, David, Brooke and everyone else that helped with this.
