California State University Channel Islands and the Oxnard Union High School District Migrant Education Program held the Summer College 10th Annual Awards Ceremony on Monday, August 8, 2011. Dr. Richard Rush, President, CSU Channel Islands began by welcoming everyone to the campus. His message was to understand that the campus was here for the community and that his job was to help those who dreamed of pursuing a higher education.

Dr. Marie Francois, Associate Professor of History spoke to the students about the importance of time-management, goal-setting, and following through with their goals.

Students also presented the effect of media on young children. They looked at every aspect of behavior, employment, and choices that are affected when young children are subject to long periods of time watching negative media programs.

Recent CSUCI graduate, Josue Magana spoke to the students and encouraged them to do their best and not settle for mediocrity.

CSUCI Director of Community & Government Relations, Celina Zacarias and OUHSD Director of Migrant Education organized the event as students from Channel Islands High, Hueneme High, Oxnard High, Pacifica High, and Rio Mesa High received several certificates and recognition from OUHSD Board Member Dick Jaquez, OUHSD Administrators, state and county officials.
