On this month’s edition of “Higher Ed News You Can Use from Onondaga Community College” we’re highlighting our outstanding alumni. You’ll meet Dr. Emad Rahim, a former OCC student who is a 2017 winner of the Outstanding Alumni Award from the American Association of Community Colleges. Rahim is a survivor of genocide in the Killing Fields of Cambodia. While in a concentration camp his father was executed and his older brother died of starvation. Rahim’s life story is the subject of a documentary, “Against the Odds.”
You will also meet Russ Corbin, OCC’s Assistant Director of Alumni Communications. Russ will tell us about “The OCC Effect,” a new outreach program we’ve started. If you went to college here we want you to tell us how OCC impacted your life.
It’s all on this month’s edition of “Higher Ed News You Can Use from Onondaga Community College.” Listen to it here!
