On May 6, the SBVC community expressed heartfelt appreciation as students, staff and faculty came together to celebrate the remarkable careers and lasting impact of 26 retiring colleagues.

As each retiree took center stage to receive their special plaques and farewell gifts, the room brimmed with fond memories, with colleagues and supervisors alike sharing personal anecdotes about the contributions each retiree had made during their tenure at SBVC.

Interim President, Dr. Linda Fontanilla captured the sentiment of the occasion, remarking, "A massive thank you to all the retirees who have made life here so successful for our students, staff, and faculty.

We will miss them terribly and wish them all the very best." Her words echoed the collective sentiment of all gathered to wish the retirees success in the next chapter of their lives.
