The Teacher Pathway graduation ceremony took place on May 16, 2018, at the King City Education Center, welcoming students and families alike with smiles on their face. This is the first cohort to complete their associate’s degree from Hartnell.  The Teacher Pathway program would not be possible without generous funding from the Claire Giannini Fund and the vision of its trustees.  It was my pleasure to share some congratulatory words to the students and speak of their future.

We were joined by Hartnell Trustee Candi DePauw, who draped the graduates with a stole. Others in attendance were Dean Celine Pinet, Dean Paulette Bumbalough, Professor Almadovar, Gabriela Lopez and Sergio Gomez (pathway directors and counselors). Our CSU Monterey Bay colleagues were also present, including Dean Luis Alvarado and Department Chair Deanne Granados-Perez, accompanied by Antonio Gallardo, pathway advisor. Starting this Fall, the students will pursue two more years of study with CSUMB teaching at the Hartnell King City Education Center, pioneering the very first baccalaureate program offered in South County.
