She was a statewide committee member for the development of the Associate Degree Transfer program, which has become a leading transfer lifeline for students to CSU institutions.

As a first generation college student I know firsthand how transformative community colleges can be in the lives of students and to the social and economic development of our communities, such as the communities Moreno Valley College serves."
