I am constantly amazed by the stories of the College of the Desert students and alumni. Since joining the Foundation, I have seen and been impressed with the many ways our students and graduates touch the lives of everyone in the Valley, making our community one of the premier places to live.
Education is not only the ticket to a better future for each student, but it enhances the quality of life for everyone in the Valley. With over 80% of our graduates and students residing within 1-2 hours of the Community College they attend, our Valley is truly a reflection of the scores of COD success stories written each and every day. I am honored to be a small part of the "Success Story" of the College of the Desert.
