Stan State Alumna Shares Culture
Stanislaus State Alumna Jenny Yang is drawing from her education and culture to teach third graders in a Hmong dual language immersion program at Vang Pao Elementary in Fresno, one of five Hmong dual language immersion programs in the United States. Yang was recently featured in an episode of PBS’s “Inside California Education” program.
Diversity Speaker Series
Three speakers are set to launch the Warrior Cross Cultural Center’s Diversity Speaker Series at Stan State. Tim Wise kicks off this year’s all virtual, three-person lineup on Wednesday, March 9, followed by Yomaira Figueroa-Vasquez on March 10 and Luis Valdez on March 24.
Psychological Counseling Services
With universities and colleges seeking to bolster their counseling staff to meet the increased demand for help after two years of a global pandemic, Stanislaus State found help from one of its own. Cynthia Borges-O’Dell, who had been treating the incarcerated at the San Joaquin County Jail as chief mental health clinician for the county’s Correctional Health Care, has returned to her alma mater as the director of Psychological Counseling Services.
Celebrating Women’s History
Stan State celebrates Women’s History Month annually during the month of March. There are a number of events planned throughout the month, including the 12th Annual Women’s Leadership Forum happening Thursday, March 10.
