A Blueprint For Change
The Argonaut, Apr. 8

A Special Note: This “SMC in the News” briefing especially highlights all the coverage related to COVID-19—the coronavirus—as relates to Santa Monica College, over the past couple weeks. As we segue to a reality of virtual interactions with colleagues and students—how inadequate it is!—I wanted to point out two SMC individuals who were highlighted in The Argonaut’s annual “Westsiders Edition”: Life Science Professor Dr. Garen Baghdasarian and retired Kinesiology professor and nonagenarian Jo Kidd. These articles are reminders of the vital, exceptional individuals who make Santa Monica College what it is. And in case you missed it, check out SMC Superintendent/President Dr. Kathryn E. Jeffery’s video on COVID-19’s effect on the college, and tips on staying calm from Dr. Susan Fila, SMC Director of Health & Wellbeing. Please stay healthy and safe.
