15th Annual Gala, "Saddleback College. First."

letterhead_header_w_text.jpg

Any college can strive to be good; but at Saddleback College we strive to be First.  First for the workforce, First for transfers, and First for career technical education. Saddleback is a gateway for our students and is their First step into a brighter future.  For some of our students, putting their education First is new, either because they had to put it aside to do something else, such as serve our country, or because the financial barriers were unsurmountable. Many are First in their families to attend college. Saddleback is First in countless ways and we are celebrating this accomplishment at our “Saddleback College First” annual foundation gala on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort and Spa. Approximately 400 community members will gather to raise funds to ensure that we are First in everything we do.
