By Lisa Deaderick | February 4, 2023 As a young girl growing up in southeastern San Diego’s Shelltown neighborhood, Denise Rogers spent time flipping through the pages of Time and Life magazines her mother kept on their coffee table. At the time, she just enjoyed the pictures from galleries in New York, Paris, and Italy. Later, after an introductory art course prompted her to change her major from fashion design to art history, she found a career path that allowed her to pair her love of both history and art.

Associated Students (AS) of San Diego Mesa College kicked off the holiday season with the 5th Annual AS Thanksgiving Feast. This event, hosted by students for students, provided the Mesa community with a warm, welcoming environment to break bread together in the true spirit of Thanksgiving. This event started five years ago with a small group of students and has grown to serving over 250 students.
“We have this integration between faculty, staff, students, and programs to come together and collaborate on this event,” said Professor of Culinary Arts & Management, Michael Fitzgerald. “It’s about celebrating the spirit of who we are as humans.”
AS and Culinary Arts combined their talents to provide a fantastic meal and a festive environment for students to enjoy. Music majors and AS member Sofia Gonzalez provided live entertainment, and all student attendees were given a chance to win prizes in multiple opportunity drawings.
Several students commented that the spread prepared by Mesa Culinary Arts students was delicious. Mesa student, Juanita Ortega-Golden shared, “This is my first time coming to this event and I think it’s awesome. As the only woman in my family, I’m always the one preparing the meals. It’s nice to have someone else cook a meal for me. I feel appreciated today.”
Based on student smiles, comments, and the overall atmosphere, it was clear that this event made the intended impact. Victoria Miller, Dean of Student Affairs, expressed the heart behind this Thanksgiving feast. She said, “It gives students the opportunity to set aside the hustle and bustle of school, work and everyday stressors, and enjoy the community feel of Mesa College.”
