It has been an epoch-making year for diversity and student excellence at the Cal Alumni Association and UC Berkeley.
When Amanda Pouchot ’08, current president of the Board of Directors for the Cal Alumni Association, was a student, the cost of attending UC Berkeley was dramatically lower than what it is today.
This fall, Ockemia Bean ’21—a mother, a first-generation college student, and a transfer student from Contra Costa College—was welcomed into the Cal community with open arms.
Jesse Ante ’68, M.S. ’70 just can’t seem to say no. And The Achievement Award Program can’t thank him enough.
