Contra Costa College
For almost 30 years, this week’s Jefferson Award winner has been teaching high school students in the East Bay, and says in all that time he has never met a “stupid student.” So when many of his students weren’t going on to college, he did something about it.
Once the students picked up their financial aid checks, they managed to either stop enrollment or withdrew from class without the college realizing it, and pocketed nearly $3,000 each.
A community college student was shot and killed Monday evening as he and his sister were in their car getting ready to go to school.
Contra Costa College may ask voters in El Cerrito, Richmond and San Pablo to fund seismic upgrades and improvements in disability access.
