Merritt College’s very own ASMC President, Ya’Mese Johnson, was on KQED’s The California Report!
President Johnson spoke briefly about housing and hunger relating to academic success in the California Community College System! She has started the conversation and hopefully we can band together and find solutions together as the hard-working and dedicated Merritt College that we are!!
It’s a one minute listen and a short read after listening! Give it a listen: https://www.kqed.org/news/11731373/half-of-californias-community-college-students-experience-hunger-housing-insecurity
