What’s up, Roadrunners!

 

I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun Spring Break. It’s back to the grind, and we are almost done, so stay strong!

The last Board of Trustees meeting was Wednesday, March 13 at the Glenn County Center. This meeting was our Vice President’s Andy Suleski’s last meeting before his retirement.
