Santa Ana College has seen many exceptional individuals walk through it's doors since it's opening in 1915. From students who overcame great odds to earn their degrees to professors who inspired in and out of the classrooms, here are the stories of the exemplary people that came through Santa Ana College.
Never count out Henry Sanchez. After being placed on academic probation at a local community college back in the spring of 2017, Henry got back on his feet and registered for classes at SAC. There he found a passion that
would not only guide him to earn a bachelor’s degree, but also get accepted to the
University of Cornell for a master’s program. Read more about this journey to the Ivy League here!
