Shirin Raban with a copy of her graphic Curriculum Vitae

- Shirin Raban- Graphic Artist and Instructor at Cal State University- Northridge invited Tony Luna to deliver a lecture to her students in late November. The title of the lecture was "Life After Graduation" and he outlined the four most commonly asked questions graduating students ask just before they leave school. Her students asked relevant questions about what employers are looking for and how they can get a good start in a promising career. It was a rewarding experience all the way around.


- Members of the Fall 2011 "Crafting a Meaningful Career" gathered for a reunion at Saladang Restaurant in Pasadena recently. It was great to see how they have stayed together to keep encouraging each other and have continued to be supportive of each others ventures. The event was organized by Suzanne Weinstein--thanks Suzanne!--and attended by all the members of the class. You are encouraged to follow in their footsteps and stay in touch with your former CMC classmates so you can help each other to achieve your goals! 


- Erv Nichols and Sandra Noll, Photographers, Naturalists- Erv and Sandra have been sending in photos of their adventures and they have to be shared, so here are a few, along with the following note from Erv.

"Sometimes I forget how lucky we are to live in these beautiful places!"
