    Mt. San Jacinto College and FoundationANNUAL REPORT 2012-2013 / CALENDAR 2013-2014


  • t. San Jacinto Colleges 2012-2013 academic year can be summed up in one word: Excellence.

    Excellence abounded at MSJC from our students academic and athletic achievements to our exceptional faculty and staff and our responsible fiscal management.

    MSJC students achieved excellence by garnering state and national recognition for their academic achievements. Samuel Fall, Shayla Esarey and Amy Bartel made history when all three received the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship in 2013. They were among 800 students nationwide who vied for the $30,000-a-year renewable scholarship. It is rare for the award to go to three students at the same college in one year.

    Shayla and fellow students Clarice Gerbl, Nik Warren and Sarah Stebbings made more MSJC history. All four ranked on the First Team during the 2013 Phi Theta Kappa All-California Community College Academic Team awards. Shayla was named a Gold Scholar and Clarice was named a Silver Scholar.

    Student Trustee Jeffery Patterson teamed with his fellow Honors Enrichment student Norberto Gonzalez to organize a speaking engagement with Congressman Raul Ruiz. Students crowded into the theater on the San Jacinto Campus for this special and successful event.

    Our Lady Eagles basketball team achieved excellence in sports by having the most successful season in school history and finishing second in the California Community College 2013 State Final Four Championship playoffs. The team set the school record for the number of victories in a season and brought home many tournament championship titles, working their way to the final four.

    Faculty achievements included awards, book publishing and an interview that aired on the History Channel. Professor Michael Plotkin received recognition for his work in online education. Daniel Barth published a new book. Dr. Denise Dalaimo appeared on a History Channel program for her expertise in sociology. Leslie Greer, American Sign Language instructor, was named president of the Conference of Interpreter Trainers.

    Mt. San Jacinto College was voted as the best school or college in Riverside and San Bernardino counties for the fifth consecutive year.

    MSJC is extremely honored to be a five-year winner of The Press- Enterprise Readers Choice Awards. Readers chose MSJC as their favorite school or college from among the numerous colleges and universities in the two-county region.

    I am pleased to share that 2013 marked the first year in five that state budget news was a bit brighter for higher education. After years of unprecedented cuts, MSJC and other community colleges are finally beginning to see a slight increase in revenue. The funding levels are still far below the 2007-08 numbers, but the economic indicators all point to an improved financial climate. The passage of Proposition 30 will allow MSJC to accommodate more students. MSJC is projecting to serve 10,456 full-time equivalent students in 2013-14, an increase of nearly 500 over the previous year.

    The MSJC Board of Trustees adopted a $57.7 million General Fund budget in September 2013 for the 2013-14 academic year. The unrestricted General Fund pays for operations, materials, supplies, salaries and benefits as well as the miscellaneous costs of doing business throughout the year. The Districts total $110.5 million budget not only includes those items covered in the General Fund but also restricted funds that can only be designated for specific use. The budget increased from 2012-13, when the Board adopted a $51.9 million General Fund budget, and a $103.9 million total budget. The California Community College Chancellors Office predicts that funding will continue to increase over the next four to five years. Thats good news for all of us and allows us to do what we do best: educate.

    I am proud of the excellence the MSJC faculty, students and staff have achieved in 2012-2013 but I also recognize that we dont do this alone. The accomplishments can only happen if we have the support of our donors and the friends of MSJC. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you reading this report and for your support through our first 50 years. I look forward to continuing the excellence the college enjoyed during our 50th Anniversary year and to carry that legacy into 2014 and beyond.

    Thank you,

  • he Mt. San Jacinto College Foundation had a fantastic 2012-2013 year as we held events that celebrated the colleges 50th anniversary.

    This annual report highlights events, the Foundations work and student achievements, but Id like to focus on our signature fundraiser: the annual Gala. The 2013 gala honored MSJCs five decades and it drew hundreds of alumni and friends who reunited, made new friends and looked at the past, present and future of MSJC.

    The Gala featured performances by five MSJC alumni who sang a number of songs to the delight of the crowd. MSJC is proud to be able to name Ron Murray, Jehnean Washington, Lynn Wiley, John Cox and Brent Howard among its alumni. We thank Dr. Dennis Anderson, retired Vice President of Instruction at MSJC and also a former MSJC alum, for bringing these talented people together for a lovely evening. Dr. Anderson became a member of the MSJC Foundation Board shortly after his retirement in 2012.

    Our current students made us proud, too. A team of students and faculty, The Anniversary 50 Project, spent the summer and fall of 2012 conducting research and interviews and prodcucing scenes about MSJCs history. Their beautiful, sentimental and important documentary was unveiled at the Gala. You can watch the 18-minute video online at

    Yes, the Foundations 2012-2013 events were fun, but more importantly they played a critical role in supporting student success. Foundation events raise funds that provide for student scholarships and mini-grants for faculty and staff to enhance instruction and support student success.

    A total of $279,668 in scholarships was awarded in 2012-2013. The 5th annual Gala raised a healthy $43,246 net toward that total. Generous donors like you deserve the credit. Your continued financial support allows the Foundation to award scholarships that help students pay for registration fees and/or the books they need to reach their educational goals.

    We are honored to list all of you as our friends in this annual report. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to visit our web site,, or call 951-487-3171. There are many ways to get involved. As an alumna of MSJC, I know that a community college education can change a persons life. Your support today will change one or many lives and help to create a brighter future for our students and our communities.

    Thank you,
