Leo Pastrana, M.A.
Transfer Center Counselor/Coordinator
2021 Faculty Transfer Advocate of the Year
Hello SAC Promise students. I am a counseling faculty member at a community college because I am an advocate for change. I believe that earning a higher education is a powerful tool to fight against injustice and oppression. It also provides the opportunity for upward mobility and it can transform the quality of life for generations to come. Community college transformed my life and shaped me into a strong critical thinker, self-advocate, and agent of change. I hope that your education inspires you to persevere, unlock your full potential and introduces you to unlimited opportunities.

2021 Classified Transfer Advocate of the Year
Greetings SAC Promise Students! My name is Diana and I am the Student Services Coordinator for the SAC Promise Program. My educational background began here at SAC where I earned my degree in Liberal Arts and became involved in many of the programs you still see today. Fun Fact! I was a participant of the very first SAC Promise Cohort which was formerly known as Adelante! I transferred to UC Irvine two years later and earned my Bachelor’s degree in English in 2015. I recentlyearned my Master’s Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Student Development in Higher Education from CSU Long Beach in hopes in becoming a counselor for future students to come. Feel free to contact me for any questions regarding our program’s services, activities or inquiries on how to join. We are very excited to meet you!
