A special birthday shoutout to our former beloved staff member. Although you are no longer around us physical, spiritually you are with us always. I still remember the day you and Liam helped me create the Jocwc Laney page. You weren't just a staff member, you were a family member. To me, I looked up to you as a brother and a role model. I still remember when I told you and Imani that I wanted to give up my dreams on becoming a nurse because I thought I wasn't good enough, both Imani Fleming and you said you would "beat my butt" if I gave up. Thank you for that day, thank you for all the laughs and the smiles you brought to our faces and thank you for always having your febreze bottle in times of need. You will always have a special place in the JOCWC and in our hearts. We love you and miss you Chris.
Love the Sahiba and the JOCWC staff

As many of you know, I'm not particularly a Facebook person however...for almost 2 years now I have had the 'good sense' to turn over administration of the Writing Center's page to, Sahiba Taneja, one of our lab assistants.
Sahiba has dutifully taken on the role of 'Social Media Specialist' posting various information such as academic deadlines, Laney College events, Peralta holidays, views on current events, quotations from famous persons, as well as birthday shout outs to current/former staff members.
I wish to thank Sahiba for all she has been doing to increase the Writing Center's presence on Social Media. Her work has been important for us in continuing our mission in the 2nd decade of the twenty-first century. Thank you so much, Sahiba!
