Top EOPS/CARE students honored

the presentation with the posting of colors by the 18th Brigade, 164th Battalion of the California Cadets Corps of Victor Valley Junior High School. Major Felix Diaz led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Dr. Fay Freeman, interim superintendent/president, welcomed students, families and friends to the ceremony on behalf of the VVC faculty and introduced the VVC Board of Trustees and administrators. EOPS counselors Peggy Nunez and Manuel Gaytan made encouraging remarks following their introduction to students.
     "I just want you to know that I'm really proud of you guys and you're doing an excellent job," said Gaytan.    Nunez made remarks with quotes from E. M. Gray, Albert Einstein and Wil

liam Jennings Bryan.
    The ceremony continued with Smith telling the story of "The Nickel and The Nail," the theme for the EOPS/CARE ceremony. The moral is being content with a meager fortune and "walking a little bit straighter and with a little more pride and dignity." The executive committee of the California Community Colleges EOPS Association adopted the theme in 1971 as a symbol of the aid offered to community college students.
     The Nickel and Nail Teacher of the Year Award went to math professor Louis Shahin, then awards were presented to students with outstanding grades, and the ceremony closed with the retiring of colors.
