First Generation 2020 College Graduate

We are delighted to share the release of our first “Shelter-in-Place” segment, which is beautifully written and performed by Jackie Espinoza of Calistoga. Jackie is a former student of mine who is a first-generation college student graduating summa cum laude from Sacramento State University. She was chosen to deliver a speech during the ceremony, however because of Covid-19, commencement will be on-line without her address. We are providing the opportunity for her voice to be heard through this video. Jackie’s story is poignant and uplifting; we believe you’ll enjoy it.
