Donations Will Assist Efforts to Provide College Students with Government and Leadership Experiences

(Santa Ana, CA) — At a regularly scheduled Board of Trustees meeting on October 26, the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) Foundation Board donated $10,000 to the Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College Associated Student Government organizations to help provide students on both campuses with important government and leadership opportunities.

“The Foundation is committed to our students and has repeatedly expressed its desire to ensure that they are the first to benefit financially from our upcoming education consulting endeavor across the globe,” said Rancho Santiago Community College District Foundation Board Member Arianna Barrios, who helped present the checks along with fellow Foundation Board member Nelida Yanez. “Since our first wave of project revenue is not anticipated to arrive until early next year, our partners at Chevron were gracious enough to assist us with this donation of funds. We know the dollars will be put to good use.”
