Party in the Library

From 3,000 Feet Above the Field,

 

 

The perspective is amazing. Soaring high

in the sky, Hartnell College students elevate their

perspectives and their lives through education. This

new perspective, from high Up in the Air, allows

our students a bird’s eye view into their past, present

and future. Rising Up in the Air, they see potential

for their lives that they never would have seen before.

In 2021, Hartnell College is also taking an elevated look to

more holistically assess the needs of our students. What do our

students need to succeed, beyond what we teach in the classroom

(virtual and otherwise)? Looking from Up in the Air allows us to see

the bigger picture of our students’ lives, needs and vast potential.

Our vision for 2021 is that we will safely come together and celebrate

our students, donors and  community at the 15th annual Party in the

Library. Alas, as we’ve learned in the past year, so many variables are still Up in the Air.

We have many possible plans for how to safely bring us all together, if permissible, including:

  • Moving the Party in the Library outside (Party Just Outside the Library, anyone?)
  • Splitting the Party in the Library into several smaller parties
  • Creating a hybrid live/virtual Party in the Library to include everyone who would like to participate
  • One thing that is definitely not Up in the Air? Sponsors will receive awesome benefits and recognition, and your generous sponsorship will be providing life-changing education for Hartnell College students!
