VISITING WITH ASTRONAUT JOSE HERNANDEZ

Got a chance to visit for a bit with Central Valley hometown hero Astronaut Jose Hernandez this morning before he gave a speech to hundreds of California’s education leaders. Jose is always so humble and willing to chat and catch up with old friends.

WELCOMING RECEPTION FOR THE NEW CAL STATE UNIVERSITY STANISLAUS PRESIDENT DR. ELLEN JUNN HOSTED BY MODESTO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE 

I had the opportunity to attend a reception last evening for Dr. Ellen Junn the new incoming president of California State University Stanislaus hosted by the Modesto Chamber of Commerce in downtown Modesto. Had the opportunity to dialogue with her about some ideas I had on how this local University can better serve our community, such as increasing the number of visits to the University for our local junior high school students who come from our disadvantaged and underserved neighborhoods, and creating a new video Game Design major so students can channel their video game creativity, energy, and entrepreneurial spirit into a college degree that can lead to a career, or even owning new start up video game design companies in Modesto. Lastly I shared that downtown Modesto would be an excellent place for a satellite university campus.

Idea for beautifying downtown Modesto

This is an alley in San Francisco with nice decorative lights crisscrossing overhead. I believe these would look nice in downtown Modesto through some of our high foot traffic corridors such as 10th Street, J Street, 11th Street…..
