Dear Members of the Río Hondo Community,
It is with great joy and pride that I extend a warm invitation to you all to join us as we mark a momentous occasion in our institution's history - the 60th Anniversary Celebration of Río Hondo College. This significant milestone, which we will commemorate on Friday, September 15, 2023, provides us an opportunity to reflect on our journey and celebrate the exceptional achievements that have shaped our legacy.
Our story began nearly a century ago, with the visionary idea of establishing a junior college for the Whittier area. This seed of an idea, planted on January 5, 1928, grew into the remarkable institution we are today. From its roots on the 110-acre former dairy farm, the Pellissier Ranch, to our current vibrant campus, Río Hondo College has been a testament to dedication and progress.
As we prepare to celebrate, let's take a look back at some of the spectacular achievements that have defined our journey:
From these achievements and many more, the journey of Río Hondo College has been shaped by the dedication and perseverance of our students, faculty, staff, and community partners. Each success story, each milestone reached, contributes to the rich tapestry that defines our institution.
As we look ahead to our 60th Anniversary Celebration, let us come together to celebrate not only the accomplishments of the past but also the promise of the future. It is with deep gratitude that we recognize the support and commitment of our community in nurturing a place of learning, growth, success, and transformation.
We invite you to join us on September 15, 2023, as we celebrate six decades of excellence, resilience, and community spirit. Together, let's honor our shared journey and embrace the endless possibilities that lie ahead.
