Mission Moment: 

A prospective student and her family came through last Friday’s tour.  When she found out that she could both study to be a nurse at #SanJoseCityCollege as well as pursue her interests at #CollegeofAdaptiveArts, she bowed her head in relief and exclaimed, “My prayers have been answered.”  #CollegeofAdaptiveArts
