To the Shasta College Community:

It is with great sadness that I write to you in light of the tragic and violent incident our nation is experiencing. I simply cannot comprehend what loss and grief the families in Uvalde, Texas are experiencing. My message to you is simple – please find a friend or loved one with whom you are comfortable to talk to and grieve with during times like these. What we have in the educational setting is a place of hope, learning, and betterment. These positive attributes can be somewhat shattered in an instant. We are here for each other and for our students.  Let’s not let the darkness of terrible events dim the light we bring to our communities. Thank you for all you do.
