On Friday, May 12, the staff of Student Support Services (SSS) TRIO will honor 45 Napa Valley College graduates with a dinner and award ceremony.
The 9th Annual ceremony for graduates and transfer students will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the Student Activities Center, Building 900.
"We are proud of the students' achievements, especially since many of them are from disadvantaged backgrounds and many will be the first in their families to graduate from college," said Michelle Hinchcliff, SSS Secretary III.
Approximately 175 people are expected to attend the event, which will include a catered dinner. RSVPs are requested by calling 256-7350 or emailing MHinchcliff@napavalley.edu.
SSS TRIO is a federally funded grant by the U.S. Department of Education serving low-income, first-generation students, and students with disabilities. At Napa Valley College the program serves 180 students annually.
