Jack Van Amringe Memorial
Since 1985, Jack Van Amringe has been a steady presence on the PCC Foundation Board of Directors. Jack, a 1954 alumnus of PCC, received his Associates Degree in Geology, and followed in the footsteps of his father, Edwin, who was the first geology instructor at PCC in 1927. Jack continued his education at UCLA, receiving both a bachelor's and master's in Geology. He and his wife, Mary Jane, were strong supporters of the PCC Foundation. Jack passed away on May 24, 2014 after a brief illness.
Your contribution to the annual fund allows the PCC Foundation to support student success and completion through scholarships, faculty and division support through the Academic Excellence Grants program and direct support to such programs as the Study Abroad program.
The Center for the Arts is scheduled to open in the spring of 2012. The new building will be a state-of-the-art 69,000 square foot facility that will house the Visual Arts & Media Studies and the Performing & Communication Arts Divisions. The building will be comprised of a 230 seat Recital hall; a 2,000 square foot Art Gallery and a 99-seat Black Box Theater. As well as art studios, practice rooms, laboratories, classrooms and offices.
The Parent Education department has been serving the needs of Altadena, Arcadia, Pasadena, South Pasadena and Temple City for the past 79 years by creating a stimulating environment for parents and children's optimal growth and development in order to support the valuable role families play in establishing the foundation of their children's lives. These classes have traditionally met for 3 semesters; however, due to budgetary constraints the summer semester has been cut in order to reduce expenses. This fund ensures these essential classes that are in high demand will continue to be offered without a four month interruption. Help save the summer semester and invest in families by donating to Parent Education.
President's Latino Advisory Committee (PLAC)
PLAC is composed of community members and PCC employees whose mission is to enhance the educational success of Latino Students at PCC. Since 2005, over $65,000 in scholarships has been awarded. Our honorees have faced tremendous barriers including poverty, personal tragedies and being the first in their family to go to college. Despite these challenges, they volunteer in the community, excel academically and are student leaders. Last year, Maria Camacho was one of our scholarship recipients. Maria's mother took what little savings she had so her daughter could enroll at PCC; it was enough for 3 units. Maria said "I do have faith on the risks I'm taking towards my career... If I take it I will learn something from it and if I let it go I would never know what could have happened." Please consider helping more students, like Maria, through a sponsorship.
