Sade Burrell and SB1252

Our very own Sade Burrell was interviewed on the subject and importance of Senate Bill 1252 (SB1252) at the KPBS television studio, located on the SDSU campus. SB12525 extends a current foster care bill that Sade advised on, and would allow foster youth up to age 25 are in college to qualify for extended programs.

And, SB1252 passed, was just signed into law by CA Governor Jerry Brown.

Sade is a Fostering Opportunties graduate student. She is an excellent example of giving back to the community. We love our students they all pay it forward. Congratulations Sade !
