Mission Statement: Focusing on the needs of the Salinas Valley, Hartnell College provides educational

opportunities for students to reach academic goals in an environment committed to student learning, achievement,

and success.

1. Press tour at the Alisal Campus focuses on Ag

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, the City of Salinas and Boots Road Group brought a

group of trade journalists to Hartnell College Alisal Campus, to give them an up-close

look at the Salinas Valley’s agricultural industry. Journalists from Chicago, Minneapolis, San Diego, San Jose, and North Dakota made the trip.

The goal of this press trip was to give reporters a behind-the-scenes look at a variety of Salinas Valley companies and organizations, like Taylor Farms, D’Arrigo Brothers, Ocean Mist, Steinbeck Innovation Cluster, Royal Rose, and others, to help them learn about all that is happening in the region’s $8 billion agricultural industry, and show them why

Salinas is a great place to do business. They were interested in the following topics:

• New/unique technology used at Alisal Campus

• Recent breakthroughs – opening of the Technical Training Building

• School views on industry trends and the Western Food Safety Summit

• Industry-wide challenges and what we are doing to combat challenges

• How Hartnell is educating future Ag leaders

• Benefits of being located in the Salinas Valley Although the focus was on Ag and food safety, the group was also inspired by our construction program, focus on sustainability, diesel technology, welding, the NASA SEMAA lab, CSIT-in-3 program, and more.

2. Newoledad High School sworn in student Trustee At the June 17, 2014 special Board of Trustees meeting, Board President Candi Depauw swore in new Student Trustee, Hector Moya, who will serve on the Governing Board during the 2014academic year.

Hector is a Salinas native, and the youngest of 4 in his family.

He is majoring in English Literature at Hartnell and plans to transfer to Chico State for his bachelor’s and to UC Davis for a master’s. His ultimate goal is to become an English professor.

He says that the reason he wanted to run for student trustee was so he would have a close interaction with students, have influence in the district’s governance structure, and to learn about Hartnell and what makes the district function.

Hector enjoys listening to students’ concerns and wants to be the voice of change for them.

He loves to read; his favorite writer is F. Scott Fitzgerald. In addition, he travels a lot with his dad or brother. A quote that he lives by on a daily basis reads, “If you can make at least one person laugh, then that is a day well-spent.”

3. Career Exploration Workshops The Hartnell College Counseling Department presents the Major Exploration Workshop Series to assist students in planning their educational goals. The workshops are designed to give important information on determining a major and career.

Scheduled workshops will be in Building B, room 110, 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

and include:

6. Staff Spotlight – Patrick Mendez now a Hartnell Alumnus We are used to seeing Patrick Laurence Mendez in his capacity as an Accounting Assistant for the Office of Administrative Services, but on May 30, 2014 he was part of the 2014 Commencement Ceremony where he officially received his Associate’s Degree in Social Science and Behavior with an emphasis in History.

Patrick has worked at Hartnell for about nine years and he managed to take classes during his lunch break and evenings. He plans to take a few more history courses and transfer to a four-year university by fall 2015 majoring in History with a specialty in Native American History; he himself has Apache and Tara Humara blood and wishes to become a teacher at the high school level so he can correctly and accurately teach the youth about Native Americans.

“Even before working here, I would come to Hartnell with my dad,” he mentions of his dad’s 35 years working at Hartnell College. “I have experienced a lot of changes – from structural to the number of students that attend.” He grew up in East Salinas, has eight sisters and seven brothers. Something most don’t know is that Patrick is a twin. His hobbies are to cooking, playing video games, reading, and watching sports (football in particular).

In addition to being a dedicated employee, Patrick is thoughtful and considerate towards his peers. When he noticed that the cashier staff needed a bit more assistance at the start of each semester, he asked to be trained so he could help relieve some of the load in that department. Congratulations Patrick!
