The Carrington College Citrus Heights campus had the honor of hosting leaders throughout the community on Thursday, Sept. 19, for a chance to meet with students and see the program facilities first-hand.
Guests included several members from the City of Citrus Heights leadership such as Mayor Jeannie Bruins, City Manager Chris Boyd, Assistant Police Chief Gina Anderson, and Economic Development Manager Meghan Huber.
Each of the guests received a private tour of the campus and met with students to speak with them about their experience and passion for helping to build the local community.
