About the President's Circle

President Circle members are an important group of community members who believe in education and its transformative powers. Through this important unrestricted support, Allan Hancock College is able to assist thousands of students and fund unique opportunities and programs including the following: 

Lab AssistantA New Lab Position in Biology

“There is great demand for our biology classes – many of which include specialized labs. With President’s Circle funding, we were able to add a new lab position and reduce wait times by adding sections – including one on Saturdays.”   Linda Metaxas, department chair 

Two girls huggingA Pilot Program for Foster Youth

“This program is an extra support system – providing services and knowledge to guide you in the right direction.”

Food Share Because We Care

“I don’t know what I would have done without this program.  It took a lot of pressure off me worrying about having enough healthy food for the week for my daughter and me.”  
Joanna Davis, single-parent (not pictured)
