NOV 21 WAS A SUPER SATURDAY!

YOU & YOUR MONEY

Prof. Charles Daniel's seminar on making wise decisions with personal finances attracted over 100 participants. Almost a quarter were from the surrounding community and/or other colleges/universities.

 

 

 

DANCE DAY

The dance studios were filled with West students and community members from teenagers to seniors experiencing master classes in Ballet, African, Modern and more. And like the You & Your Money seminar, a number of faculty & staff were among the participants. The semi-annual dance showcase is this week, Dec 4 & 5. See their preview video below.

 

 

 

 

 

BASKETBALL & GOLF

Men's Basketball held part 1 of the Wild West Shootout Tournament. While the Wildcats could not defeat the reigning State Champions, they did keep the score tight right up to the last 3 minutes of the game but ultimately lost 68 - 50. The Women's tournament will be Dec 18 - 20.
The Wildcats are also celebrating a successful golf fundraising event. Working in partnership with the Culver City Chamber of Commerce, West Athletics grossed nearly $10,000.
