Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) Vice President for External Affairs Sonya Soltani, ASI Representative at Large Tomas Ortega, Executive Assistant to the President Elogeanne Grossman and Assistant Director of Community Relations Jared Giarrusso joined the president and Mrs. Wong in visiting classrooms.

President Wong also met with the school’s student council, a group of 30 fourth- and fifth-grade students who work to build their leadership skills.

Faculty and staff were invited to donate school supplies to the local elementary school at the president’s annual holiday reception in December. Jose Ortega Elementary School Principal JoLynn Washington met with the president and Mrs. Wong to accept boxes of notebooks, pencils, pens, markers and other supplies.
