Thanks to South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor) for sharing that photo from today’s grand-opening celebration at the new Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) center, highlighted in our “West Seattle Tuesday” morning roundup. SSCC communications director Kevin Maloney explains, “The AANAPISI center staff provides culturally appropriate student services to support and assist students in achieving their educational goals and increase the mobility of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in higher education.” Joining in the ribboncutting were SSCC president Gary Oertli and college-system chancellor Dr. Jill Wakefield, who are on the left side of the photo with SSCC student Mathew Apelu, while at right is Kendee Yamaguchi, executive director of the Washington State Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs. The new center is on the second floor of the SSCC Library.
