SIERRA COLLEGE PATRONS LOVE OUR VETERANS

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2019

Rocklin, CA (January 18, 2019) – The Sierra College Patrons, a support group of the Sierra College Foundation, invites the public and those interested in becoming members of the organization to attend their February 4 meeting which will feature a presentation by Blake Rood, Lead Counselor at the Sierra College Veterans Success Center and his associate Jay Blake.

The Sierra College Veterans Success Center is dedicated to serving the needs of veterans returning to college after their service, many of whom need emotional and social support as well as academic assistance.  The Veterans Success Center is looking forward to some exciting changes as well as an expansion of services in the upcoming academic year.  They have recently moved to a new home on the 4th floor of the Library Resource Center and have been awarded a Grant from the state of California.  These developments will be discussed in detail and there will be an opportunity to ask questions about programs and services offered.

The Sierra College Patrons organization donates $1,000 annually to the Veterans Program on campus to be utilized in the way they see fit.  Often individuals enrolled in the program are in need of personal help with expenses or with academic tutoring.  Such services can be provided.  Assistance with everyday interactions, both personal and campus related can also be provided.

The Patrons meeting will be held on Monday, February 4 from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. at the Sierra College Rocklin Campus in the Fireside Room located in the Campus Center (Building J).  Lunch (which is optional) will be served at 12:30.  The cost of the lunch is $11 and requires an RSVP.  Please call Joan Edwards at 916-663-3408 by January 28th.
