La Sierra University’s Frank Jobe Memorial Gala Raises Scholarship Funds for Student Athletes
La Sierra University recently hosted the Frank Jobe Memorial Gala at the Riverside Convention Center, featuring basketball legend Bill Walton as the keynote speaker. The Gala raises money for scholarships for La Sierra’s Student Athletes. The Pacific Union Conference is just one of the many sponsors of the event. Pastor Ricardo Graham hosted a table with several of La Sierra’s students. As a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics institution, La Sierra University has developed a “Champions of Character” campus program. We are so proud of La Sierra – “where academic investigation, Christian faith, and service to others unite!”

National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, at that time there were less than two million people with the disease.

Honoring Veteran’s Day
Veteran’s Day is next Monday, November 11, and it’s a day to pay tribute to military veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originating in 1919 when President Woodrow Wilson marked a year since the end of the First World War, the day coincides with other days of remembrance around the world including Armistice Day in the United Kingdom and Remembrance Day across the Commonwealth of Nations.
