The San Jacinto College District is a community college, and it has appointed Dr. Alisha Wilkins as a board member of the college’s foundation.

Dr. Wilkins has lived in the City of Temecula home for more than 17 years. However, it was in 2002 that she moved to Temecula with her husband, a now-retired Navy Veteran who served our country for more than 24 years.

She has been an active and engaged community member ever since.
