News and Events

The 2014 Graduation (May 17, Jenny Craig Pavilion, 4 PM) honors Distinguished Alumni Linda and Carlos LeGerrette.  They are 4th and 5th generation San Diegans, and graduated from Mesa in 1969.  While students at Mesa, they formed the M.E.Ch.A Club, a student organization founded on the principle of self-determination.  This is still an active club on campus!   In the 1960's, as a young married couple, they joined Cesar Chavez in fighting for the rights of farmworkers.  Decades later, they created Cesar Chavez Service Clubs across San Diego to honor the labor leader's life and commitment to community service.  The Union Tribune recently honored the LeGerrettes with the Latino Champions Lifetime Achievement Award for their dedication to serving their community and developing future leaders.

We are proud they are part of the Mesa family!
