EOPS/CARE/ CalWORKs Summer Office Hours: Monday - Thursday 8am-4:30pm Friday CLOSED Thank you, Hermila! Hermila Hernandez started in EOPS as a student and was instrumental in reviving the club and raising scholarship funds. Then in Apirl 2010, she worked in our office as a student assistant. In August 2012, she was hired for the temporary Office Assistance position. With Hermila's wealth of experience, she has been a great asset to our department. She has been able to assist us with the critical day-to-day tasks that allow us to provide students with above and beyond services. Unfortunately, her position expires on July 31. We have been very fortunate to have her working as part of the EOPS/CARE/ CalWORKs Team. Thank you Hermila for all your hard work and dedication! We wish you all the best as you move forward towards your next endeavors!
