Hartnell College students are staying strong, despite the immense challenges of pursuing their education from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hartnell students face even greater obstacles than most college students because of job loss, crowded housing and limited access to computers and WiFi across the Salinas Valley.
By uniting in support of these Hartnell Panthers, we can make sure our hardworking students keep on learning and achieving their educational and career goals.
Through this Hartnell Students Strong campaign, you will help the students most in need. A portion of your gift will also benefit student clubs, athletic teams and academic programs — all disrupted by the coronavirus.
Get involved. Be generous. Keep Hartnell Students Strong!
