In recognition of her tireless leadership to provide local residents with increased access to educational opportunities, while championing new and innovative programs and partnerships which contribute to the vibrancy of this valley, College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne Van Hook will be honored by Emblem Academy during the Santa Clarita Environmental Education Consortium (SCEEC) Community Mixer and Garden Dedication Ceremony on Nov. 6.

The SCEEC is an initiative of College of the Canyons, which operates as a private-public partnership with a mission to promote environmental literacy in the Santa Clarita Valley.

It is dedicated to promoting sustainability awareness and practices both on campus and in the community by hosting events and activities that help teachers and learners of all ages become more involved with environmental issues.

As a founding member and current member of its advisory board, Dr. Van Hook has enthusiastically supported SCEEC programs and community outreach efforts, including the annual K-12 Environmental Science Fair, Environmental Writing Contest, and the Green UpEnvironmental Leadership Conference held at COC in October.
