SBVC Participates In College Signing Day At San Manuel Stadium
San Bernardino Valley College made its presence known at the College Signing Day event on May 3 at San Manuel Stadium. Organized by Cal State San Bernardino’s California Student Opportunity & Access Program (Cal-SOAP), College Signing Day was attended by several thousand K-12 students, their families, and teachers. SBVC set up a booth to distribute baseball pennants, T-shirts, coloring books, and pamphlets, and Interim President Dr. Scott Thayer addressed the crowd inside the stadium.
“I think it is important for Valley to be at these types of events in the community, to engage and connect in that way,” Amanda Moody, administrative secretary with Student Equity and Success, said. “We’re able to attend events where we are seeing elementary and junior high kids who are not exactly college ready, but it’s an early intervention to get them thinking about college and community college. Four-year institutions are not always an option, and we really want to make sure that local kids know Valley College is here to support them.”
