Record number of SASS students honored at Cañada graduation 


On May 27th, fifteen SASS students received a degrees or certificate from Cañada College, up from seven students a year ago.   Three students received Associate degrees and will transfer to four-year universities. Katherine Ramirez will study economics at UC Berkeley, Karen Velazquez will study psychology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and Viridiana Yengle will most likely attend Cal State East Bay to get her special education credential.

Silvia Gomez is the first SASS student to earn a certificate in medical assisting. In addition, 11 students received PASS certificates. This certificate signifies that a student has completed all required Cañada College ESL classes as well as English 100, a college-level class that counts for credit at the University of California. These students can now start taking classes to prepare them for their chosen careers.
