The In the Know @ El Centro newsletter provides an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to share information and photos of the many wonderful events taking place at the college. Every day, I am reminded that the people who work here see and treat each other as a "family." Each member of this collegiate extended family has a role to play in helping students to fulfill their dreams and aspirations through higher education. In many cases, El Centro students are the first in their family to attend college, and so they are in a journey of creating a new chapter in their lives and that of their families. It is a story of how ECC helps change lives for the better.
We will publish an e-newsletter each fall and spring semesters, and occasionally publish a focused and limited newsletter on a particular topic between the major publications. A limited number of print copies will be available. I encourage you to share accomplishments, major events, recognitions and awards, ideas, opinions, and photos for future issues.
I am so impressed with the submissions for the naming the newsletter contest and it was difficult choosing a winner out of all the entries. I congratulate the five winners and thank everyone who participated.
I would like to thank everyone who played a part in making the newsletter so successful. I hope you enjoy it.
