$1,000 Donation to BGCSC
UEI College hosted a social media contest in December, challenging students in different classes at all 16 UEI locations to see who could raise the most awareness for their local Boys and Girls Club. To win the contest, students in the class had to share a post on social media and generate the most likes and shares. The Dental Assistant (DA) class taught by instructor Morgan Villalpando at the UEI College campus in Chula Vista tied with another class at UEI College in Fresno for first place, winning a $1,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Imperial Beach.
