EPCC Adopts Ramona Elementary School

El Paso Community College (EPCC) adopted Ramona Elementary School as part of its elementary school adoption program during a proclamation ceremony held at the school.

During the ceremony, EPCC President Dr. William Serrata welcomed YISD Superintendent Dr. Xavier De La Torre, Ramona Principal Irene Medlin and the student body to the program. EPCC is committed to increasing the number of students going to college in our region.

By building strong elementary school and college connections through campus tours, workshops, presentations, outreach programs and parental involvement, EPCC is building a college going culture where “college begins in kindergarten”.

“A student is never too young to learn the importance of going to college,” said Dr. William Serrata, EPCC President. “Reaching out toEPCC Adoption_Proclamation_HiRes elementary school students and their parents allows students to learn that higher education is within their reach and we build a college-going culture.”

Ramona Elementary School is EPCC’s third school adopted and first for the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD).

Previously EPCC adopted Campestre Elementary from the Socorro Independent School District (SISD) and Frederick Douglass Elementary from the El Paso Independent School District (EPISD).

EPCC has plans to continue adopting elementary schools across the city.
