Student Activities Specialist Rick Trevino coordinated his fifth graduation ceremony at Ventura College this year. “Students look forward to graduation. It’s their opportunity to celebrate their success with family and friends, and it’s an exciting time on the campus.” Rick is especially grateful to all the staff that put in many hours of time planning and preparing for the commencement ceremony. “Planning for graduation usually begins in January, and classified staff, faculty, and administrators pitch in to help. It’s a collaborative effort. This year we had approximately 570 graduates, which is the most ever.”
When he is not coordinating graduation, Rick advises the Associated Students of Ventura College and oversees the 15-20 student Clubs & Organizations on campus.
