“Los Angeles Valley College is an incredible institution. In high school, I was a mediocre student who graduated with no sense of direction. Now, thanks to the amazing opportunities and resources I discovered while attending this school, I will be the first in my family to graduate from college this spring, and will be transferring this fall to a university.”
