Delta College MESA Students Attend Leadership Retreat
Five San Joaquin Delta College students attended the Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Leadership Conference at the Happy Valley Conference Center in Santa Cruz, April 13-15. The Hispanic College Fund partially funded the event.
Students were chosen based on their demonstrated leadership potential. Delta College students Wayse Akbar, Christopher Branner-Augmon, Alexis Buz, Gerardo Chavez and Rodrigo Tellez were selected to participate in this year's conference.
More than 150 MESA community colleges students throughout the state participated in the retreat. The Leadership Conference was an opportunity for community college students to interact, network and build leadership skills. The event included field experiments handling chemistry and engineering design projects, hands-on breakout sessions and industry speakers. Specialists from Genentech, Oracle, NASA and the Society of Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) made presentations.
MESA is an award-winning academic enrichment program that provides educationally disadvantaged students with the tools to earn bachelor’s degrees in math-based fields. With tutoring, mentoring, study sessions, transfer counseling and study centers, MESA provides an environment that allows students to succeed and navigate the transfer system more easily. MESA has programs in more than 30 community colleges in California. One hundred percent of MESA students go to four-year colleges and universities as math-based majors.
