News: PCC First Year Experience Speaker Series Presents The Legacy of the Pact
Pasadena City College concludes its First-Year Experience Pathways Program speaker series with “The Legacy of the Pact” on November 18 at 3:30 p.m. in PCC’s Creveling Lounge.
Doctors Sampson Davis, Rameck Hunt, and George Jenkins, bestselling authors of “The Pact,” will tell their inspiring story of how three young men from Newark, N.J., persisted to achieve their dreams and become doctors. The trio will also discuss the educational implications of their extraordinary lives and leadership.
“The Pact” has also been selected for PCC’s “One Book, One College” program. Sponsored by PCC’s Office of Student Affairs, Cross-Cultural Center, Campus Diversity Initiative, Teaching and Learning Center, and Student Access and Success Initiative (SASI), the program’s goal is to supplement the college’s ongoing conversations about which its students are and how it can best serve them.
The First-Year Experience Program is designed to increase student success and retention for incoming students from high school. Pilot is funded by a Federal Title V grant and supported by SASI grants. Students are recruited from the Pasadena Unified School District and other in-district high schools.
