Sierra College is one of three community colleges in the nation to receive a $1 million endowment. Officials recently announced that the Rocklin-based school was the only community college in the state to receive the endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation. The endowment will help support the college’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, which provides a program for older adults in the area. It is offered without cost, homework, grades or exams, allowing older adults to develop the knowledge, skills and abilities to remain engaged and contributing members of the community, and live healthier, more productive lives, according to new release from the college. - Staff report
