Learn How to Ride Motorcycles Safely This Summer at WCC

Admit it: When you walked by that 600-pound bike in the parking lot, you felt a little jealous. Someone else had sat on top of its shiny chrome, with every cell in their body idling at the same RPM as its engine.

WCC Grad Finds a Future in Health Care

When Lourdes Kincaid was growing up in Ecuador, she was the kind of girl who brought home hurt animals to nurse back to health and who was ready to help whenever a family member was sick. “My parents always said I’d grow up to be a doctor, a nurse, or a vet,” she said.

WTMC: A High School and College Combined

Lucilla Chalmer is a recent high school graduate who wants to be a neurosurgeon, so this fall she enrolled at the University of California-Berkeley to pursue a pre-med degree.
