A Special Visit With a Special Senator

On Friday, February 16, Amador College Connect welcomed California State Senator Marie Alvarado-Gil and her staff to visit and tour the facility. Elected in 2022, Senator Alvarado-Gil represents Amador County, along with twelve other surrounding District 4 counties. She is an independent leader in the legislature, and one of the main policy issues she has led in the Senate includes resource equity for rural communities such as ours. Senator Alvarado-Gil and her husband live in Amador County and are owners and principals at STUDIS Partners, an education consulting firm that represents charter schools and other public school institutions throughout the United States and Central America. It was an inspiring visit, and we left feeling optimistic about the future!
