The Yuba Community College District Board of Trustees and I join with California Community College Chancellor Brice Harris in extending our condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of those devastated by the horrific events at Umpqua Community College in Oregon yesterday.
These senseless acts of violence continue to remind us that we must take extra care to be as safe as possible. In solidarity with Umpqua Community College, flags throughout the District will be lowered to half-staff.
Please hold our colleagues, students, survivors and the victims' families in your thoughts and prayers.
Chancellor Douglas Houston
