-From the Gainesville Sun-

The Santa Fe College Community Outreach & East Gainesville Instruction celebrated 10 years of service to east Gainesville by honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to educational outreach and by providing an overview of new programs during its annual community forum.

More than 125 Gainesville leaders and residents attended the forum held last Thursday at Mount Carmel Baptist Church.

Dr. Jackson Sasser, president of Santa Fe College, said the college has been named one of the top 10 community colleges in the nation because of educational outreach efforts like those provided in partnership with faith-based organizations and community organizations.
