Notes From Ish


Ismael Herrera



May came with a flurry of winteresque weather but inevitably brought us to the doorstep of summer. Here on campus, we celebrated a record graduating class of about 6,076, which included three of our very own talents. One of our featured stories this month highlights the creative genius of one of those graduates and her recent work on a new car sharing program within the region. We also put a bow on this year’s San Joaquin Valley Blueprint Awards process by recapping this year’s award ceremony and winners. Our low-cost internet call center team also kept busy this month through a partnership with the Mexican Consulate in Fresno. Lastly, we introduce you to one of our other recent Fresno State graduates whose contributions to our team have been invaluable.


Until next month…

Ismael D. Herrera, Jr.
Interim Executive Director
