LPC STUDENT ACHIEVEMENTS
We Applaud You For These Successes!
Kris Adhikari, "Community College All-USA Academic Team" - April 2013
Kris Adhikari was recognized at the American Association of Community Colleges annual conference for being only of only twenty members of the Community College All-USA Academic Team. He was also recognized as part of the team in the USA Today newspaper.
Kris' award is a testament to his hard work and dedication, but it is also a result of the investment our faculty and staff make in our students every day.

Julian Alvarez, "PG&E Bright Mind" - June 1, 2012
Colleagues, This week we received word that LPC student Julian Alvarez was named a "PG&E Bright Mind" and will receive $30,000 a year for five years to continue his education. Julian is a transfer student who told us that he is "in a whole other world now. Now I can consider more opportunities, such as private colleges and a higher degree beyond my bachelors."
He is part of our Student Veterans Organization, a member of the Psychology club and is part of PSI BETA. Best of all, he will be back at LPC next year! You can see the news story and video here: http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/local/san_francisco&id=8682874 This is fantastic news and further confirmation of the excellent work we do here. Thanks to each of you who helped make this possible for Julian.
