West Hills Lemoore hosts Evening  of  HOPE August 26

West Hills College Lemoore will host an evening of HOPE on August 26, from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. in the West Hills College Lemoore Student Union.

Members of the community are invited to attend and enjoy live music performances, food for purchase from local trucks, and a presentation from the Santa Rosa Rancheria.  Community resource tables, college financial aid information, and campus tours will be available. A roundtable discussion about overcoming barriers to college will also be held.

“We are excited to welcome the public onto our campus to enjoy the fantastic music, food, and culture that is such a huge part of South-Central Valley,” said Zara Sims, WHCL Director of H.O.P.E. Initiative.  “We are also looking forward to providing community resources and college information, including financial aid info, to help those thinking about enrolling in college, our career programs, or GED and ESL programs.”

An Evening of HOPE is sponsored by WHCL’s H.O.P.E. Initiative, which serves under-represented groups, such as our Black, Native, and Hispanic community, especially Hispanic males, LGBTQIA, foster youth, and people experiencing poverty and homelessness.

“West Hills College Lemoore is committed to putting ‘community’ into community college,” said Sims. “An Evening of HOPE, our first event, is establishing the H.O.P.E. Initiative as the vehicle to serve the residents of this great area!”
