Oktoberfest was a wonderful and successful event!  October 6th, we had close to 200 people who joined us for a great night of food, drinks, music, and a silent auction.  This event is hosted by the Kremen Alumni and Friends chapter and all proceeds go towards providing scholarships to Kremen students.  Make sure you join us next October!

The new Clovis Unified elementary school opening August 2016 at the corner of Temperance and Clinton avenues was named Virginia R. Boris Elementary School on Wednesday.

Virginia “Ginny” Boris was a Clovis Unified School District math teacher, principal and associate superintendent from 1971 to her retirement in 2008. She was inducted into the Clovis Hall of Fame in 2010.

G. Boris Honored

“I am humbled, overwhelmed and honored because I love this district,” Boris says. “I cannot think of a higher honor that you could bestow upon me than by putting my name on a place that is devoted to learning and teaching.”

Boris continues to mentor teachers and others in the education community at Fresno State and in the Central Valley Educational Leadership Institute.

Virginia R. Boris Elementary is the first in Clovis Unified School District named after a female educational leader.

On September 25, 2015,  Fresno State’s Mini-Corps Program that recruits Latino teachers and helps migrant students is one of five programs at four California State University campuses recognized by the White House for their commitment to narrowing the Latino achievement gap.

The White House released the “Bright Spots in Hispanic Education,” Sept. 15 and the CSU announced the honor in its system wide newsletter “CSU Leader” Thursday.

 “We appreciate the great work done by Mini Corps and the thousands of teachers and students served over the years and of Fresno State’s long tradition and partnership in that,” said University President Joseph I. Castro. “These professionals have marched out into the community to help teach and nurture many young migrant students who strive to create a better life for their families through education.”

Dr. Paul Beare, dean of the Kremen School of Education and Human Development that houses Mini Corps, said the school is “ incredibly proud” of the Mini Corps faculty and students. 

“They make a real difference in our community,” Beare said. “We have Mini Corps alumni on our faculty and others who are leaders in our community.  Another program that makes Fresno and Central California a better place to live.”
