The College of the Canyons Community and Continuing Education department will host a Recognition Reception honoring students from the college’s Emeritus College and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs on Monday evening, June 2.
The evening’s events will include a photo power-point presentation chronicling the 2007-08 school year and a special awards ceremony to recognize the Student of the Year honorees from both the Emeritus College and ESL programs. Student of the Month, Honorable Mention Student and Perfect Attendance Student honorees from throughout the school year will also be recognized.
“I am proud to be part of these extraordinary programs, and pleased to have this opportunity to honor the hard work and love for learning that these students show on a daily basis,” said Jennifer Brezina, COC Interim Dean, Noncredit and Community Education.
The COC Community and Continuing Education Recognition Reception will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Student Center room 126.
Seating will come on a first come, first served basis, with event organizers asking that guests RSVP with the COC Community and Continuing Education Office.
