Electricity/ Electronics Instructor Can Run like the Wind

Gerald Chase, instructor of Electricity/ Electronics at San Bernardino Valley College, sure can run like the wind. At 81 years of age, Chase participated and medaled in the 2017 National Seniors Games in Track and Field held in Birmingham, Alabama.  Chase placed third in the triple jump and second in the 4 x 100 men’s relay, with the participants ranging in age from 75-79.  He also ribboned in the javelin, discus, long jump and high jump. Even younger squads were impressed with the agile instructor, and invited him to train with them for other track and field events.

Upon returning home, he was congratulated by SBVC Applied Technology, Transportation and Culinary Arts Division Dean, Albert Maniaol. Chase has been an Electronics/Electricity adjunct instructor here at SBVC for 18 years and believes these competitions keep him healthy and agile. Congratulations Mr. Chase!
