It is with heartfelt sorrow that we have been following the tragic developments ensuing from the violent shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday October 1, 2017. This was especially personal for me as I learned two of the victims, Michael & Summer Gracia, were shot by the attacker. I have had the privilege of knowing the Gracia Family and serving side by side as a law enforcement professional with Michael Gracia’s brother.

To pay tribute to the victims of 9/11, Foundation volunteers joined Jim Partridge for his 4th annual 9/11 Tribute Run in the city of Rancho Cucamonga.
Jim, an advid runner, professional fitness coach, and patriot started organizing the 9/11 Tribute Run 4 years ago to memorialize the sacrifices made by the victims of September 11th. And he hasn’t stopped since. As time passes, Jim feels that many of us are beginning to forget what happened on that fateful day. He endeavors to raise awareness, pay tribute and honor those who died 16 years ago.
As we look back on the day the United States was attacked, also remember the day we came together as a nation. Let us honor the lives we lost on September 11, 2001 by remembering the day as a glimpse of what we can accomplish when we serve together.
We often forget the contributions of ordinary Americans… those who go to work hard everyday to strengthen our economy, ensure our prosperity, and lobby for the rights of workers. On this Labor Day, I want to say thanks.
Thank you to all who get up everyday, despite reservation, to go to a place where they may not feel appreciated, where the weather may not be favorable, and where the recipient of your services may not be patient. Particularly to those of you who put your best foot forward anyway.
On August 29, 2017 – the twelve year anniversary the levees broke in Louisiana following landfall of Hurricane Katrina, we announced efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Coincidentally, the levees began to break around Houston, Texas as flood waters crippled the regions infrastructure and rescue efforts were underway. The decision to create a disaster relief fund received overwhelming support from Foundation supporters. Especially since, 100% of donations have been committed to recovery efforts.
Supporters like you asked that we coordinate efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and we heard you loud and clear.
On August 29, 2005 there were over 50 failures of the levees and flood walls protecting New Orleans, Louisiana, and its suburbs following passage of Hurricane Katrina and landfall in Mississippi. The levee and flood wall failures caused flooding in 80% of New Orleans and all of St. Bernard Parish.
Please join us in thanking the city of Ontario for allowing us to speak before city council Tuesday, August 15th. As Mayor Leon stated, 3 minutes was not enough time to explain all the great work you, our community of supporters, are doing. But we are still grateful for the opportunity to introduce you to some of the folks we’re helping and to be acknowledged.

D’Andre is proud to be the newest face of the National University website. Included on the splash page of the new website was a profoundly accurate quote, “As a non-profit institution, we know that it’s not just the degree our students earn that matters, but the degree to which they use it”.
