City College receives $100K anonymous donation

100% of donation to go toward scholarships

City College received an anonymous charitable donation of $100,000 during the winter recess.

The funds were specifically designated for student scholarships, according to Executive Director of College Advancement Mary Leland.

City College has received other large donations in the past – the largest being $1.75 million from a bequest, according to Leland – but the $100,000 donation is significant.

“For a cash gift from a live donor, that’s very important. And we were very excited to get it,” said Leland.

3rd Conference Loss, Panthers defense not enough

City College women’s basketball team lost its third straight Big 8 Conference matchup after losing Jan. 13 to cross-town rival Cosumnes River College in a close 60-56 game.

The Panthers had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds but came up short after the Hawks got their own rebound after a missed free throw and scored. With 10 seconds remaining in the game, Panthers’ freshman guard Jasmine Bernardo attempted a 3-pointer to cut the lead to one, but missed, giving the Hawks the chance to close out the game.

“I think we turned it over too many times, and I think we missed the easy [shots] that were uncontested,” said City College head coach Julia Allender. “I think we relied to heavily on the 3-point line in the second half, and we didn’t rebound the ball.”
