KING CITY — Portola-Butler High School in King City partnered with Hartnell’s Office of College Readiness to facilitate a Feb. 22 field trip for 30 students to both the Alisal and Main campuses in Salinas.
The morning started with a tour of the Alisal Campus and its programs, technology and learning tools, led by Dean Clint Cowden and Program Assistant Celia Anderson.
Following a tour of the Main Campus, the group received lunch, along with brief introductions of staff, programs and services offered by Office of Equity Programs, EOPS, Nursing/Allied Health, Library Services and Student Academic Support.
Three of the students in the group are enrolled in the dual enrollment course offered as part of Hartnell’s College and Career Access Pathway Partnership Agreement with the South Monterey County Joint Union High School District.
Program assistant Geri Alonzo from College Readiness organized the experience, and Moises Almendariz and Leda Polio from HSI Initiatives provided support.
“The collaboration, patience and coordination amongst Hartnell College staff was on display and made for a quality student experience at our campuses,” said Laurencia Walker, director of student affairs for college readiness.
