Drexel University Sacramento’s Michael Marion Appointed to California Student Aid Commission

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Michael Marion, Executive Director and Associate Vice Provost of Drexel University Sacramento, was recently appointed to the California Student Aid Commission, where he will support the mission to make higher education more accessible for California students.

Appointments to the Commission are made by California Governor Jerry Brown and the position requires State Senate confirmation. As a commissioner, Marion will represent private and secondary education schools. He’ll attend his first Commission meeting in November.

“It’s a huge honor to be considered by Governor Brown for this role and be able to join some of the outstanding individuals who are already serving as commissioners,” Marion said. “This is a great opportunity to give back to students to make sure they can access financial aid and have the opportunity to be successful in college.”

Feeling Fall // Essentials for Creating a Cozy Mantel

Feeling Fall / Essentials for Creating a Cozy Mantel

We had a brief moment last week, where the temperatures dropped slightly and it was rainy and overcast. It was glorious and just a taste of what is to come.

My favorite way to usher in any new season is to add a few easy pieces to my fireplace mantel that have the feel and color palette I am craving.  No major sweeping changes, just a smattering of new details to create the perfect ambiance.

I Had A Dream I Had Breast Cancer – I DID!

Hi!  I am Lisa O’Hara, Contributor to News10 My Neighborhood for the past three years.   So many events, taking photos and writing articles, informing our community of the great nonprofit organizations which serve our community, brought me to “Race for the Cure” last year which touched my heart deeply as I was photographing women whose survivor-strength shown on their faces, the family members who attended their mother, wife, daughter, aunt, niece and perhaps neighbor who was there to run “The Race For The Cure. “ There were many who as they ran, walked or were in wheelchairs and still undergoing various treatments, showed courage and resiliency for either their “noted year of survival” or the remembrance of a loved one whose life was taken by breast cancer.
