Fresno City College held their fifth annual CityFest on Sept. 20, 2019 to raise money for the Dean’s Medallion, a scholarship that will be awarded to a student who shines above the rest.

The scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding student in the college’s Applied Technology Division.

“The event is where faculty and community come to celebrate,” said FCC President Carole Goldsmith.

The college aimed to raise $5,000 which will be matched by the State Center Community College District.

FCC is still totalling the amount raised, according to Executive Assistant to Administrative Services Melissa Llanes who added, “I can say with confidence that we met our goal and will be able to fund the endowment.”

“We are thrilled that the event was such a success,” said Dean of Applied Technology Becky Barabe.
