In addition, Kimiko is starting a graduate program in Education with a concentration in Equity and Social Justice at San Francisco State University.

Joseph (pictured right) comes to the division with a wealth of knowledge having worked in a number of departments at Skyline College: Guardian Scholars Program, the Counseling Division, the Learning Center and as an Office Assistant for the Promise Scholars Program. Joseph earned his Associate’s degree in Business Administration from Skyline College and transferred to San Francisco State University where he is working on his Bachelor’s in Business Administration.

We are excited to have them both on board. Please make sure to say hello and (officially) welcome them to the Skyline College family!
