​invest, impact, inspire​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

On Friday evening, September 18, 152 friends of SJECCD and 34 current or former students enjoyed a fun evening of networking, dining and donating at the District Foundation's 4th Annual "Bridge to the Future" event. Held at Hotel Valencia in Santana Row, guests were serenaded by the band "Latin Heat" while connecting with friends and colleagues at the pre-dinner reception. Once the program started, two featured alums gave inspiring speeches and a Latina dance quartet performed; all the while a story-boarder caught all the excitement in words and images. Mistress of Ceremonies, Ms. Chandra Lopez-Brooks, herself an alum of both San Jose City and Evergreen Valley colleges, kept things lively with humor and shout-outs to friends and civic leaders. The evening's theme was "From Good to Great" and guests were treated to many inspiring stories of students successfully changing their lives. Platinum sponsors included the Republic Family of Companies, and the Vita Companies, represented by Erik Hansen who expressed delight at the event and shared how community college helped him in his college years to make the journey to an advanced degree.​
