Vice President - Julie BenavidesDear Graduating ELAC Husky,

On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration of East Los Angeles College – Congratulations! You have worked hard and deserve to celebrate a key milestone. I know that I speak for the faculty and staff in that it is such a great joy to see you in your academic regalia on commencement day walking across the stage to receive your diploma. We are sure that for your families even much more excitement awaits and we are grateful for their support of you.

Graduation marks the end of one journey and the beginning of another – whether it be career or continuing on to the university. These new beginnings in life are full of possibilities and success. As you move on, remember the values of excellence and caring for others.

“Excellence is the Result of:
Caring more than others think is Wise, Risking more than others think is Safe,
Dreaming more than others think is Practical, and
Expecting more than others think is Possible.” – RONNIE OLDHAM

We hope that you continue to care, risk, dream and expect excellence. We want you to return as proud ELAC Alumni and serve as our ambassadors promoting higher education and changing lives for the better. Come back and tell us how you are doing and make us even prouder.

Again, we congratulate you and wish you the very best!

Julie Benavides
Vice President, Student Services Division
