Why I’m for Measure G

As a mother of five and an adult student myself, Measure G has my whole-hearted support!

Six members of my family have attended Sierra College at both the Rocklin and Grass Valley campuses. I obtained my associate’s degree at Sierra College, and went on to a private college to obtain my bachelor’s Degree. My eldest daughters transferred from Sierra College to California State University, Sacramento, and both obtained their bachelor’s degrees. My husband, who worked for years in construction, attended evening classes at Sierra College to increase his skills, which enabled him to make a wonderful career change.

My oldest son is attending Sierra College full-time as an adult student, with a plan to transfer to the University of California, Davis, in fall 2005. He has received excellent counseling and has benefited from late-entry programs. I am currently attending an evening class at Sierra College, along with my youngest daughter, who is a senior at Nevada Union. We are both enjoying it very much, especially since it is right here in Grass Valley.

We are so lucky to have this resource, so please add your vote to my family’s, and support continued development of our local educational opportunities at Sierra College!
