my alma mater writing center

Found out yesterday that the YVCC writing center had made the local paper last Monday: $3 million grant will help YVCC expand Hispanic enrollment. Yay!

(That’s my former counterpart, Brad Smith, in the photo.)

Brad Smith of the Yakima Valley Community College writing center works with student Judith Johnson earlier this month. The college recently received a $3 million Department of Education grant to help grow its Hispanic programs and enrollment.

Not surprising YVCC got another grant to help Hispanic students. Yakima has a large Hispanic population and YVCC has great learning (writing and math) centers. I’m proud.

Dodie is quoted:

The centers have been popular, agreed Dodie Forrest, noting that students have been flocking to the writing center, which she directs, since the first day of classes this fall. “They come for help with any writing they’re doing — whether it’s rough drafts, revisions or answering questions.”
