Former Olympic medalist to coach cross country

In less than a year the cross country and track and field team has gone through two head coaches. One was terminated before the cross country South Coast Conference Championships and the other left for another coaching position at East Los Angeles College. The lack of access to a proper coach is harmful to an athlete’s career, which was why PCC was eager to hire Innocent Egbunike as someone who could bring his experience and stability to a floundering team.

Community celebrates Black History Month with parade and festival

Despite the hot weather Saturday, the Pasadena community turned out for the 34th annual Black History Parade and Festival, which featured food trucks, music and PCC students and administrators.
As one of the oldest and longest parades for Black History Month in the U.S., the Black History Celebration Planning Committee wanted to honor past leaders of the community who continue to inspire a new generation of future leaders.
