The San Diego City College Disability Support Programs and Services held a virtual Zoom celebration for students who are graduating or transferring this spring 2021 semester. 

The celebration on May 12 honored the DSPS students and administration who helped them along the way through their time at City College.

“I’d like to thank the DSPS counselors for helping us accomplish what we may have thought would be difficult to do by ourselves,” said Alicia Guerra, a student speaker at the event.


There were a lot of tears from students who spoke about how DSPS has impacted their lives, but it was also a party that included music, laughter, and memories.

“We are not our disability, our disability doesn’t define us,” student speaker Michelle Juarez said.

Each student’s name was called out along with their accomplishments, certificates and degrees that they will be receiving at the end of the spring 2021 semester, followed by cheers from the crowd.
