College to celebrate 20th year

To mark its 20th anniversary, the College of Health and Human Services will host a gala to honor its graduates at 6 p.m., Saturday, May 4 at the Steven Yamshon Alumni Center.

Among the alumni honored will be nursing graduates Mary Baker, owner of the successful local home health care agency Chicken Soup Plus, and nationally recognized motivational speaker Dixie Schneider.

The gala will include dinner, dancing, entertainment, a recognition ceremony and silent auction. The College's Dean, Marilyn Hopkins, will welcome guests and then turn the program over to the emcee for the evening, Marianne McClary of "Good Day Sacramento."

Over its 20-year history, more than 25,000 students have graduated with a degree from the College of Health and Human Services, providing professionals who enrich the quality of life and look after the community's emotional and physical needs.

For example, the nursing division provides 80 percent of the region's nurses who hold bachelor's degrees. The College also has the largest criminal justice department on the West Coast and educates master's degree-level social workers, speech pathologists and audiologists, and physical therapists. In addition, the College offers programs in recreation and leisure studies and kinesiology and health science.

Tickets for the gala are $60. To reserve a seat or for more information, call the College at (916) 278-7255.
