The Grossmont College Foundation announces the appointment of
Ernest Ewin as Interim Executive Director. Ernie is not only a
Grossmont College graduate himself, he was also president of the
Associated Students of Grossmont College (ASGC), and has been an
active member of the Foundation Board of the Directors for
several years. He recently completed a four-year term as
chairperson of the Prop R Citizen Bond Oversight Committee, and
currently serves as a member of the La Mesa City Council.
According to Ewin, “After visiting with a number of classified
staff, faculty and administrators, I cannot tell you how excited
I am to return to the Grossmont Campus after starting out here
in 1966. As the interim executive director of the Grossmont
College Foundation, I sense an energy on campus that is highly
supportive of our students and helping to address their needs.
After 60 days on-the-job I know that working together, through
the Foundation, we can make great progress.
The first opportunity to build on our collective
relationships will be the Foundation sponsored Annual BBQ/Padres
game on September 20. Tickets are going fast, fast, fast!
The cornerstone of our Foundation fund raising activities
takes place as this year’s Walk of Fame Dinner Auction and Gala,
Saturday October 21, 2006 at Barona Valley Ranch Resort. Through
the efforts of event subcommittee chairs Beverly Wight (Auction
Items), Alba Orr (Campus wide Baskets), Victoria Howitt
(Volunteers), Tammy Huston (Entertainment), Pat Murray
(Decorations), Sirkka Huovila (Word Processing) and Gaydeen
Dollar (Finance), we are looking forward to our most productive
gala ever. We also thank Jamie Gassert and Roz Scott (Graphics
and Printing), and Logan McIntosh, Foundation Events
Coordinator, who round out our current team.
Please get involved and contact one or more of the above. We
are putting the “eye” back on Grossmont and its students with
our Sapphire Anniversary - Celebrating 45 years of Brilliance!
