Santiago Canyon College to Hold Lorenzo A. Ramirez Sculpture Installation Ceremony on February 11
(Orange, CA)— Santiago Canyon College (SCC) will host a sculpture installation and naming ceremony for the Lorenzo A. Ramirez Library on the campus, Thursday, February 11, 2016. The ceremony begins at 2 p.m. in Strenger Plaza, in front of the library. Lorenzo A. Ramirez challenged the segregation of schools and was a plaintiff in the landmark lawsuit known as Mendez, et al, v. Westminster School District of Orange County, et al that led to the end of “Mexican schools.”  The Rancho Santiago Community College District Board of Trustees unanimously named the SCC library, the Lorenzo A. Ramirez Library, in July 2014 to honor Ramirez’s contributions to the education of schoolchildren in California and nationwide.
