March  2017
As a long-serving member of the board of directors, I hope that you will join me in helping those at CI who are able to study on campus due to the generosity of the community and your alumni support. We have a number of first-generation students at CI and they have a real chance, with our assistance, to finish their degree programs and graduate with success . Helping them is an investment not only to those students but to our Ventura County community. It is the CI way!
