New officer on duty

City College has a new officer making the rounds, and he says he’s determined to show the best side of the school’s police department.

“We’re college police, but we’re community police too,” says Sam Esquibel, who works the evening shift on campus.

When he was a kid living in Missouri, Esquibel and his mom and two brothers stayed in an old church run by the Salvation Army. Every year, state troopers would come for Christmas to buy the kids presents and this inspired Esquibel to give back to the community, he says.

City College student Jacky Fu started playing Yu-Gi-Oh! cards in the fifth grade and since then has been Yu-Gi-Oh! playing position.

Empowering youth to overcome challenges

Chris Robinson, 29, a student at City College who is majoring in interpersonal communications, says he is trying to fulfill a personal dream to provide mentoring to needy Sacramento. Robinson says he helps teens face their negativity, ignorance about being responsible for their actions and lack of positive self-image when he helps them recognize their own power of conscious choice.
