Five Empire College hospitality majors were honored to receive a Toni Felciano Memorial Scholarship on July 28. Antoinette "Toni" Felciano was an Empire graduate who worked at the California Welcome Center in Santa Rosa.

Threes- A Charm

Angie in her clinical class

Before I became the Evening Dean here, I taught some classes at Empire College. Even before that I taught high school. Eleven of those teaching years were at Analy High School. I especially liked having those freshman classes- still young and not jaded.  I remember one class about ten years ago a really pleasant, smart and enthusiastic student named Angie.
