The Owens Valley Career Development Center (OVCDC) took a road-trip to the Ridgecrest campus for a day of meetings and a campus tour on Monday, March 30th.
Since 2007, OVCDC has been a strong partner of Cerro Coso Community College, supporting nearly 100 students each semester enrolling in Cerro Coso courses. OVCDC provides financial support–covering tuition, fees, books, materials and supply costs–academic and career planning and guidance, and academic and social support for Native American students in Inyo, Mono, and Kern counties. Many of OVCDC’s students are pursuing CTE certificates and degrees.
Gina Jones, Director of Career Education, Kathy Anderson, Career Counsellor, DeAnne Chiatovich, Academic Counsellor, and Stefanie Jackson, Office Manager, spent the day at the Ridgecrest campus meeting with student services staff, CTE faculty, and administration. Thank you to: Jill Board, Jarrod Bowen, Lynn Charlon, Herman Foster, Lisa Fuller, Pamela Godfrey, Annette Hodgins, Valerie Karnes, Mike McNair, Mike Metcalf, April Naill, Debra Rundell, Paula Suorez, Matt Wanta, and especially Jennifer Curtis for spending time meeting with and hosting our OVCDC partners!
