Celebrating milestones at LA City College

Access to a quality public education has been the key to success for millions of Americans who came to this country seeking a better life for their families. Los Angeles City College (LACC) has been providing that kind of quality education to local students for more than 70 years and today the college celebrated two milestones.

Dr. Jamillah Moore was inaugurated today. She is the first African American woman to permanently lead this institution, and I know that she is committed to providing leadership that will enhance educational opportunities for all of our students. In addition, the college opened the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, a brand new 63,000 square-foot facility that will be a great resource for LACC students.
