Jose Simo

All my colleagues, faculty and staff, it’s our job and passion to support students; by teaching, counseling, ensuring our facilities are the best they can be for learning or by just offering a smile. Day in and day out, student success drives what we do. And many of us do more – volunteering, mentoring. I began supporting COD Foundation in 1999. That’s the year I started working at College of the Desert. I wanted to be part of the wonderful work they do in support of our students and programs on campus. Currently my contributions help our AB 540 students, those who are not eligible for FAFSA and yet have high financial need. I’m proud to have a small role in the Foundation, who with its other donors have a huge impact on our students, their success and the success of the entire valley.
