2018 Lorena Herrig Career Enhancement Award: Arnon Erba, Agricultural and Resource Economics
I am actively pursuing an associate’s degree in Computer Science through the Los Rios community college system. Eventually, I plan to transfer to UC Davis to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the same field. I am very grateful to be the recipient of a Staff Assembly Scholarship, and I appreciate having the financial support to further my educational goals.
