Alisal students take part in Hartnell's "Panther Day"

About 1,200 fourth graders from the Alisal Union School District took part of “Panther Day,” a one-day extravaganza at Hartnell College that introduced them to their local community college and the possibility of higher education.

Administrators and staff welcomed the “future college graduates” in the Gymnasium. The fourth graders were treated with a special skit by The Western Stage staff, demonstrations by robotics, student-athletes presentations, information about accessibility to college, financial aid and more. Hartnell College students served as tour guides and introduced their young peers to specialty facilities that included the nursing simulation lab, science labs, library, athletic facilities and others.

Organizers hope this type of events hope it becomes a staple and help inspire more students to pursue higher education. Looks like students had a great time!
