“Our community has entrusted us to serve and respond to those seeking knowledge, enlightenment, and fulfillment. With every nail and paint can we are building the foundation from which thousands of individuals can springboard. Some students may go on to further their degrees, others will obtain the skills to acquire a job or advance in a position, and still others might seek to upgrade their basic skills to put themselves in a better position to achieve their personal goals. Regardless of the motive for seeking higher education, our community colleges are willing and able to accommodate the community’s needs. We feel a strong responsibility for the funds entrusted to us and are excited to report that nearly all of the Measure E project bids have come in under estimated construction costs. On behalf of the YCCD Board of Trustees, I thank you for your continued support of Modesto Junior College and Columbia College. It is because of your generosity, that we are able to accommodate our current and future generations of students.”

Dr. Joan E. Smith,
Chancellor, YCCD.
