Gradution of One of Our Own
In an important milestone, Club kid Joseph Aceves and 100 other graduates from Ventura College, who would be moving on to Cal State and UC schools; marked their transition in a special ceremony, as they advanced to the next stage of their academic careers. Joseph, who had been an active Club kid for the past 13 years, will be transitioning to Cal Poly in the coming season. The event marked an emotional moment for not just Joseph, but also for his family. Branch Manager, Ms. Elizabeth Claudio and Ms. Marcela Gallegos, who have known Joseph for many years, were happy to see his hard work come to culmination. “He comes from a difficult home situation” Ms. Claudio remarked, but “I know that we made a difference in this young man's life. And with his perseverance and our guidance, he has achieved up to this point the goals that he set for himself."
