Proclamation: SRJC

100 YEARS OF ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE—Mayor Joe Palla (pictured right) and the Cloverdale City Council recognized the 100th Anniversary of Santa Rosa Junior College, in January of 2018, by presenting a proclamation to (pictured left) Ricardo Navarrette, vice president, SRJC Emeritus (retired) – 2016. Navarrette said access to quality higher education for all residents in the district continues to be the same motivation that drives the district 100 years after it was chartered in 1918.  Over its one hundred years, SRJC has served more than 1.7 million individuals with a vision of being an inclusive, diverse and sustainable learning community that engages the whole person, thus reflecting the legacy of its imprint on the entire North Bay region, a vision guarded vigorously throughout the test of time.
