Demographics can lose sight of individual student

A City College student received the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke award, one of only 85 nationally to receive the scholarship. A former RISE student earns her Ph.D. A student with a disability holds an art show. These are just a few of the individual student success stories chronicled in this edition of the Express, the last issue of 2013-2014 academic year.

Throughout this semester and through the history of this college many similar stories have gone unreported. The individual stories of the successes at City College are vast and would be impossible to cover in one campus paper. Likewise, graduation or transfer rates and other data used to determine if a community college is successful do not include individual triumphs or personal milestones of its students.
