Ms. Vanessa Thomas was one of my teachers while I was at Chaffey. She helped, encouraged
and supported me through the loss of my dad and maternal grandmother weeks apart.
She helped me by putting a smile on my face when I needed it the most. She knew how
close Dad and I were and helped me to remember the great times we shared.
Although I am still new at Chaffey, I am so grateful to be surrounded by a supportive
community that genuinely cares for the well-being of students. I am a proud Panther!
Chaffey has given me all the skills I need to face what's ahead of me, My instructors
did so much for me and guided me on the right path. I learned so much and I am happy
and proud to be a panther. Chaffey is my home.
I went back to school during COVID. I was in my 40s. I took Chaffey courses to satisfy
general education requirements and will be graduating with my Bachelors degree from
a university this May! Chaffey saved me a lot of money and helped me to appreciate
the role community colleges play in the lives of many...including me!
I would just like to thank our amazing Chaffey faculty and especially those in the
Political Science department for providing me with clarity and direction on where
I can go. Without them, I don't think I'd be working towards becoming a professor
and a published scholar on the Middle East, national security, and international affairs.
