EPCC Adopts San Elizario ISD’s Lorenzo G. Alarcon Elementary School

On Thursday, El Paso Community College (EPCC) welcomed Lorenzo G. Alarcon Elementary School as part of its school adoption program during a proclamation ceremony held at the school.

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

Alarcon Elementary School is EPCC’s seventh school adopted and first for SEISD.

“It is important to go to college because it breaks down barriers and allows you to take a seat at the table, where without a college education you would not have even been invited to sit and be a part of any decision making’” Dr. Jeannie Meza-Chavez, SEISD Superintendent said.

“Just think of the security and numerous financial and career options it provides for future generations.”

EPCC President Dr. William Serrata welcomed San Elizario Independent School District (SEISD) Superintendent Dr. Jeannie Meza-Chavez, Alarcon Principal Julissa Esquivel and the student body to the program.

EPCC has plans to continue adopting elementary schools across its district.

Previously EPCC adopted Campestre Elementary from Socorro Independent School District, Frederick Douglass Elementary from El Paso Independent School District, Ramona Elementary from Ysleta Independent School District, Canutillo Elementary School from Canutillo Independent School District, Frank Macias Elementary School from Clint Independent School District and O’Donnell Intermediate School from Fabens Independent School District.
