American Career College was awarded this year’s Community Service Award in recognition of its commitment and efforts to positively impact the community through the extraordinary volunteer work performed by its staff, faculty and students.
All of the campuses worked together this past August to participate in a school supply drive that generated more than 4,500 items to benefit local schools and organizations.
The ACC campuses also raised a combined $50,000 for the American Heart Association at Heart Walk 2017. On March 6, 2017, more than 400 people from American Career Colleges showed up at Angel Stadium to increase awareness about stroke and heart disease and to support the American Heart Association. Many of the volunteers arrived in Anaheim by 7 a.m. to take part in the 5-kilometer run where several students from the Orange County campus’ physical therapist assistant program wore superhero costumes and participated in the run and then joined in the 5K walk that took place later in the day.
Highlights from the day included
“It was really quite amazing to see our students, faculty, and staff collaborate to help a cause that is so meaningful to all of us,” Susan Pailet, ACC vice president of graduate services, said. “What started as an ACC-sponsored event was made even better when West Coast University got involved.”
