Gohar Khechumyan’s father is supportive of her education and wants her to go to college. But because of his limited English and the differences in the college application process in the U.S. versus Armenia, navigating the process is foreign and bewildering to him, she said. Gohar and her father, Vigen Khechumyan, attended the Path to College community forum organized by the Glendale chapter of the Armenian National Committee on Wednesday night to learn about the details of finishing high school and heading to college in the U.S. “I’m trying to get every little bit of information about college,” Gohar said.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — A proposal to expand Glendale Community College's Garfield Campus would turn a block of Garfield Avenue into a grassy area and 24 parking spaces. The proposed $20-million expansion of the campus — which college officials laid out at a public meeting at Chevy Chase Baptist Church on Tuesday — calls for a new classroom building and 136 new parking spaces. To accommodate the expansion, the college would have to purchase three residential properties — which are three separate apartment buildings — and take over one block of Garfield Avenue, between Chevy Chase Drive and Adams Street.

While competing in the Western State Conference championships, the members of the Glendale Community College men's and women's track and field teams had something more to fend off besides their opponents Friday. With a howling and frigid wind blowing throughout the majority of the meet at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster, many of the Vaqueros were able to successfully conquer the opposition and the conditions. It turned out to be a big day in particular for Glendale women's distance runner Lizzy Nelson, who won a pair of events and helped the Vaqueros win the overall team competition.

PASADENA - Two weeks ago, the prospect of the Glendale Community College men's golf team getting out of the Western State Conference Final and qualifying for the Southern California Regionals was bleak. But when the Vaqueros placed second in a conference match April 14 at Oakmont Country Club, there was a glimmer of hope that the team could qualify for the postseason. With three of the four postseason spots already locked up heading into Monday's conference finals, Glendale college would have to best the remaining four schools to earn a berth.

State Regionals in Ventura County, the Vaqueros will at least have the luxury of having gained some much-needed experience to help them heading into next season. Two men's doubles teams and one women's doubles team and a singles player from Glendale all had their runs end Friday.

Glendale Community College officials are hopeful the state will give them more than $1 million to pay for unexpected costs tied to the school's lab/college services building, which is under construction. When crews broke ground on the building last fall, they didn't anticipate finding an old drainage system, unstable soil and groundwater as they prepared to construct its foundation, said Ron Nakasone, executive vice president of administrative services. Although the college has $2.1 million set aside to pay for contingency costs, college trustees have approved spending about $850,000 on change orders due to the additional unexpected costs.
