He attends school at the Cascade Campus and plays on the men’s basketball team. Retherford won a 2016 The Skanner Foundation scholarship, as well.

Board members Jim Harper, Kali Thorne-Ladd and Deanna Palm also attended to support the great cause of King’s legacy. About 600 people were at the event that included a keynote speech by Oakland-based civil rights lawyer Howard Moore.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
