San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital and Mt. San Jacinto College have partnered to host an Education Summit on May 18, to help residents and businesses find success through the opportunities and avenues available in the San Gorgonio Pass.
“There are phenomenal opportunities in this area,” said Dr. Dennis Anderson, Vice-President of Instruction at Mt. San Jacinto College.
The Education Summit is scheduled for Friday, May 18, and will be open to businesses, organizations and the public. Two sessions will be available to meet the needs of the San Gorgonio Pass residents, one from 6 to 10 a.m., and another from 4 to 8 p.m. Both will be held at the Mt. San Jacinto College San Gorgonio Pass Campus, at 3144 W. Westward Ave. in Banning. In addition, organizers are working with local transportation agencies to provide free transportation to the public.
The Education Summit is designed for residents to meet with educational and vocational service providers. It will help residents learn more about educational opportunities, vocational certificates, soft skills for job placement, financial aid, Veteran services and more, while providing businesses with well-trained employees, all of which will help promote new business and industry in the Pass area.
“We’re making people aware of what’s here,” Anderson said. “It’s amazing what we saw here today.”
