Endowing the Social Sciences Dean's Medallion Scholarship is the focus of this year’s fundraising. The FCC Dean's Medallion winners not only represent scholastic achievement, but perseverance. These students have either (or usually both) overcome great obstacles or have contributed greatly to the community. Below is a quote from the 2017 Social Sciences Dean’s Medallion winner who worked 10 hours a day, six days a week each summer to pay for college.
“I will continue to pursue the American Dream my parents sought when coming to the United States many years ago. Despite my own struggles, such as having to work in the fields to pay for school and living expenses, I too will continue plowing on just like my parents do day in and day out. No force has driven me more than my family, and I will succeed to show them that their sacrifices are worth-while.”
We will also be holding an event at the College to reach this goal: FCC CityFest 2017 on September 29, 2017. This year’s CityFest features two live bands, dancing, wine, beer, and a silent auction in the beautiful Old Admiration Building.

Fresno City College is proud of our students and graduates; CityFest helps us to create a legacy of giving for the students that are still to come.
Thank you for your support and we hope to see you at CityFest too!
