A Message from the Chairman

As the newly elected chairman of the board for the LASC Foundation, I understand the importance of making today’s students our primary focus for they will be tomorrow’s leaders. Many young people in the South Los Angeles community are subjected to financial  and  academic setbacks, and we want to utilize our resources, programs, and services to limit these challenges.

For many of these students, they will be the first person in their family to attend college, and I can relate to that daunting feeling. We hope to establish more opportunities for every young person to succeed and assist them along the way, even after they enroll in college.

I am honored to share with you our upcoming programs and initiatives for Los Angeles Southwest College Foundation Double Down 2020 Campaign. Our goal is to provide double the scholarships and resources through connecting with like-minded community partners from various sectors. We also strive to increase student involvement in STEM, Entertainment, Health, and Technology fields, where there are plenty of new and emerging career opportunities.
