Slide:

On Saturday, April 28, Sierra College Foundation proudly presented the 14th annual A Taste of Excellence on the Sierra College campus in Rocklin. This is the Foundation’s largest fund-raising effort and includes a tasting of fine foods and wines from the best restaurants and wineries in Northern California.

Event proceeds will support Sierra Promise – a comprehensive effort devoted to reaching high school students who never thought college was possible, and getting them on the path to secure employment. Working with regional school districts, Sierra Promise provides early and continued outreach to students in 15 local high schools to improve college readiness, access, and student success.

Your support of A Taste of Excellence empowers Sierra College to keep our Promise to students! Together, we are creating a college-going culture in our region, and Sierra Promise is helping students plan and achieve their own success story.
