“I never lose. I either win or learn.” – Nelson Mandela

Like any football playbook worth it’s sweat, Andrew

McDonald’s was packed with solid strategies. It also brimmed with setbacks and never-let-up confidence. His plan to succeed was not quick or fast, but it was worth it.

The Quarterbacks Born into the accomplished footsteps of a father whose talent took him to the NFL to call plays for the Cleveland Browns, an older brother who wore cleats at USC, and a younger brother who suits up for Bowling Green State University, one could assume that Andrew had a birthright to gridiron greatness. But Andrew, whose first sports love was basketball, said his father never pushed him to rush the field. “I’ve always been a hard worker, and I get kind of obsessed with perfection,” admits Andrew.

The get-it-right work ethic worked in Andrew’s favor. When doubt, detours, and doubters crept in over the years, the Newport Beach native used the noise to keep football front and center, even when he could’ve—and even should’ve quit. Through it all, he overcame broken bones, earned a hardfought and hard-won quarterback position, and proved that “possible” is not just about hope but persistence. After high school, Andrew joined the University of Arizona as a walk-on. Once he realized it wasn’t a fit, he returned home to Orange County to contemplate his next move. He considered Saddleback College and Chapman University before selecting Santa Ana College at the suggestion of a high school coach who spoke highly of the football program. 2


Getting Grounded Although Andrew walked on the field with a broken arm, Santa Ana College and Coach Geoff Jones openly accepted him. Andrew found a football family that trusted him, pushed him, celebrated with him, and held him accountable for keeping his head in the game. “I had such a positive experience at SAC,” he said. “I was lucky, and I’m incredibly grateful. Because of SAC and my second chance, I was able to earn a football scholarship and an opportunity to play at the Division One level.” When his time at SAC ended, Andrew headed to New Mexico State University, finally achieving his goal of becoming a starting quarterback. “Very few people can say they’ve done that. “Everything I had gone through up to that point prepared me [to succeed],” he said. After graduation, it was time to move on to the next chapter. Nowadays, Andrew co-runs Koru Risk Management, a commercial insurance firm in Newport Beach. SAC took a risk on him, and to pay it forward, Andrew is making philanthropic plays for students. Instead of punting, he’s now putting. Last year his company was a major sponsor of the Ed Arnold Golf Classic, which helps fund SAC’s athletic programs and student-athlete scholarships. “It was cool to be able to give back,” said Andrew. “I’m happy that my partners were on board because it’s such a great honor to raise scholarship funds for the kids that want to go to such a great place, to allow them to further their education and continue their dreams, just like I had the opportunity to do.” Spoken like a true winner. ANNUAL REPORT 2019-2021


The Optimist

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.” – Helen Keller



The passion Edith Gil has for education is palpable

and persistent, just like her audacity to dream beyond her borders. Realizing her academic aspirations took a decade, but today, with three Santa Ana College degrees to her name, the honors alum is ready to take on the Ivy League.

Getting Grounded Like those in her immigrant-rich, Huntington Beach, CA enclave, Edith’s family came to the U.S. in pursuit of lifeenriching opportunities—a chance to be more and achieve more. For Edith, the path to more was education. “My parents instilled [in us] that it was the only way,” she said. Since Edith “always loved school,” the plan was perfect. As early as first grade, Edith saw first-hand how a quality education, committed teachers, and academic curiosity could change her life, not to mention her community. In fifth grade, Edith earned a foundation-backed transfer to a higherperforming school based on her progress and potential. And just like a California poppy in summer, her world, and her worldview, opened. The environment offered resources, exposure to extracurricular experiences, and unexpected insight into economic disparities, which influenced Edith’s collegiate and social interests. “I didn’t know specific names like I’m going to study sociology and business. I just knew I liked those topics [and what they could offer],” she said. Edith continued to excel in school while coping with economic scarcity at home. After high school, she skipped college and went into the workforce. “It wasn’t even on the table,” said Edith when asked about the decision. “I needed to help my family pay bills.”

If “Never Give Up” Was a Person For the next decade, Edith worked in a warehouse. She wanted more. She felt stuck. When an untreated on-the-job injury left her unemployed, Edith found herself at a familiar fork in the road: find another just-to-get-by job or go after her education. Her selection led her to Santa Ana College. “My time at SAC was special. I felt a sense of belonging, like the counselors understood my story and had an interest in helping me in the next chapter of my life.” Because of SAC and the community who saw her potential and supported her journey, Edith is now studying both business and pre-law at Cal State Fullerton. After graduation, the multiple scholarship recipient plans to attend the University of Pennsylvania or Harvard University, become a civil rights attorney, and make good on her grade school plan to create more informed and prosperous pathways to success through economic philanthropy.

“I want to show people there’s a better life they could be living.” Lead the way, Edith. Lead the way.

“Never give up, never give up on yourself, and never lose faith in your dreams, in who you want to be. Your journey might not lead you exactly where you might imagine.”

– Edith Gill

M e e t Our Gamechangers educational and career goals. To know we are a part of a partnership that is building a comprehensive program to address these real needs is humbling. That is what will make our communities brighter and stronger.”

This landmark $1.25 million gift was made possible by Allan’s entire family. All three generations.

Ken gives so much of his time and energy to SAC, because “SAC has given so much to him.” When he was a student back in 1959, he landed his career-changing job at First American Title Company thanks to doors that were opened for him at Santa Ana College and he worked closely with the Kennedy family.

Thank you to the following donors who have made special contributions to our Raising the Game campaign which has raised almost $3 million to date. Union Bank

When Parker and Sherry Kennedy decided to support the Santa Ana College Foundation’s Raising the Game Campaign in a big way, they donated $50,000 to establish the Ken and Barbara Purcell Kennedy Scholarship to support business-minded students like Ken once was.

George Pla Inspires Others to Give

It started with one sentence. “My family and I are going to donate $100,000, but, there’s a catch.”

The Fainbarg Chase Family Wants Students to THRIVE Philanthropy, it’s truly a family affair for the family of Allan Fainbarg, Santa Ana College Alumni Hall of Fame recipient who undoubtedly left his mark on the economic landscape in Santa Ana. After serving in the military and graduating from Santa Ana College, Allan and his family went on to be one of the most prominent business owners and philanthropists in Orange County. Today, led by his wife Sandy, his family continues his giving legacy with their most recent gift of $1.25 million in support of The Fainbarg Chase Thrive Center, a program that will enable Santa Ana College to serve its students in a multitude of ways including housing, mental health support, and a much-needed food pantry. SAC students have been long-time recipients of the family’s generosity and to-date this gift is the culmination of over $2 million of committed investment from the family. Allan and Sandy’s daughter Nancy Chase shares: “My family and I are so passionate about helping students reach their 8


A Full-Circle Moment When Parker Kennedy thinks gamechanger for Santa Ana College, the first person that comes to mind is Ken Purcell. The two-time Hall of Famer, longtime supporter, and dedicated volunteer has spent years of his life making SAC a better place.

In May 2020, George Pla announced his generous pledge to the SAC Foundation with one contingency, they had to match his donation dollar-for-dollar before the end of the school year. The Foundation staff, board members, and supporters, rallied together to rise to the challenge. One-hundred and eighty-six alumni, donors, students, and staff, came together in a big way. So big, in fact, that the George plan a matching gift challenge was reached tenfold.

George Pla

The gifts donated through this challenge are already being put to work. Helping students with critical support for things such as scholarships, books, and other technological needs. In addition to his generous gift, George has committed to providing internship opportunities to each student who receives a scholarship through the Cordoba Scholars Program at Santa Ana College. Generosity begets generosity, and George started a ripple effect that will be felt for generations to come.

And thank you to ALL of our annual fund donors who are gamechangers and have contributed to this comprehensive campaign.

The Muse Some people leave a mark on your heart. These types of people are vividly distinct, inspiring, generous, and passionate. They push you to immerse yourself in the beauty around you. They are rare. Ed Fosmire was one of those people.

“He was not swayed by what others wanted to do,” said Robert Fosmire, Ed’s identical twin brother, pictured, right. “He was not your typical play video games and ride bikes type of person, even as a boy.” Though Ed enjoyed those things, Robert said, he was truly an intellectual, a curiosity seeker. “He would be the first to find an interesting magazine, go through it, and once he found something worthy, he would share it with the rest of us.” The kid could draw; he could paint. If he put his mind to doing something creative, he did it.” Ed’s Aunt Jeanne sparked his quest for knowledge and all things creative. “She had a lot of interest in art, music, and performing arts. She was the first person to take us to a museum,” recalls Robert. “Ed was naturally interested in arts and culture. She helped cultivate that.” The sibling Robert admired became a recognized local artist and professor who freely and joyfully shared his artistry and altruistic spirit with Santa Ana College. “It was pretty clear that he was home there. He found such joy in the work and being part of that community, said Robert. “He was deeply involved in so many different levels and facets of the institution.” One of those facets was The Fosmire Family Scholarship Ed founded in 2014 to help budding and deserving art SAC



“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people. – Vincent van Gogh

students. “Ed was profoundly dedicated to his students first and foremost—they loved him, and he loved them,” said SAC instructor Darren Hostetter, who shared an office with Ed and traveled with him to Asia to appreciate and study ancient art. When the respected and well-loved Santa Ana College Art History professor passed away to the shock and sadness of his second family at SAC, his Aunt Jeanne, who introduced him to the love of his professional life, founded The Ed Fosmire Memorial Legacy Scholarship. The two shared a love of art, artistry, and cultural adventure, as well as a deep affection for philanthropy and SAC’s mission to change lives. Since 2017, Jeanne has been a substantial donor to her nephew’s beloved SAC. Now, Robert and his family have found themselves carrying on the work that his brother started by rallying together and generously supporting the scholarship in his name.

“Even though we shared the same DNA, we saw the world differently,” says Robert. “Now I am able to see things through his eyes and am so proud to continue his legacy through philanthropy.” Those who are selected to receive The Ed Fosmire Memorial Legacy Scholarship should, like Ed, be understated statementmakers. People who, like works of art, are unique. “I think he would want [the awardees] to be people who are going to do their own thing and chart their own course,” said Robert. Ed Fosmire left us too soon, but the impression he left on all who knew him, especially the students he influenced during his impactful 25-year career as an art museum director, lecturer, curator, and art expert, will endure.



Alumnus Wylie Aitken class of 1962, was the keynote speaker at this event. Pictured here with his wife Bette Aitken who graduated from SAC in 1963, he highlighted the importance of having a space like the Johnson Student Center for students on our campus. Wylie shared anecdotal stories of his days being involved with student life at SAC along with what it has meant to him to stay connected to the college.

Construction of the beautiful new Johnson Student Center building began in December 2018 and officially opened in Summer of 2021.




This 63,642 square feet facility houses a variety of student life and student support service offices, as well as a campus bookstore, Quick Stop/café, The Spot, a conference center, and our student Health and Wellness Center. New site improvements include new landscape, hardscape, outdoor seating, a shade structure and a serving kiosk for the college on the west side of the new student center. It’s a state-of-theart space for our students to study and receive the critical services needed while in school.

The two-story building which was named after the first college president John Johnson will also include a cafeteria and lounge area complete with pool and table tennis for students to enjoy.

The Johnson Student Center replaces a facility of the same name built in 1968, which was demolished in 2018.

Wylie and Bette have been wonderful philanthropic supporters for decades and we are so grateful for their support. In addition to the new Johnson Student Center, our students and faculty will soon be able to enjoy a new large Science Center, scheduled to open early 2022.

The grand opening celebration took place on July 27, 2021 and was well-attended by many community members, donors, leaders, students, faculty and staff, and prominent alumni.



When Life Gives You Lessons


The circumstances leading Andrew Hanson to become a military veteran, Stanford University and Harvard Law School alum, and Washington, DC-based attorney were not ideal.

Andrew tried to escape the unproductive elements of his Chicago neighborhood but eventually mingled with the wrong crowd, slid off the honor roll list, and joined the ranks of high school dropouts. But even when things looked bleak, he had a plan. One thing about Andrew, he always has a plan.

“You are not your circumstances. You are your possibilities. If you know that, you can do anything.” – Oprah Winfrey

Andrew polished his survival and adaptation skills early on. When his home life became unstable, and his single mother fell on tough times, Andrew went to live with relatives out-of-state. “I think it served me well to jump from different social networks in my life,” said Andrew, about his upbringing in opposite socioeconomic environments. The experiences shaped and molded his when-preparation-meets-opportunity mindset.

Plan B Later, after moving to Arizona to earn his GED, Andrew joined the military with a 20-year plan: enlist, become a legal specialist, get a bachelor’s, climb to a commissioned officer post, get a law degree, and retire as a Judge Advocate General. Andrew had it all mapped out until he started considering his options outside of a long-term military career. He thought about becoming a police officer until then SAC student, and now-wife, Melvis, encouraged him to consider college. Hesitant because of his rocky academic past, Andrew faced his fears, compared plans, and pivoted, taking online classes before going full-time. Once on campus, Andrew discovered an encouraging environment where he could grow, get involved, and build community. He joined student government, the Student Leadership Institute, and was an Orange County Community Colleges Legislative Task Force representative.



Today, Andrew shows his gratitude by giving back to the place he says gave so much to him. He often speaks to students about a community college’s benefits and proudly highlights SAC on his LinkedIn profile. In 2021, Andrew gave the keynote address at the SAC Foundation President’s Circle event for donors who give $1,000 or more to support the next generation of planners, leaders, and achievers.

“Attending SAC was a phenomenal experience in my life,” said Andrew. “It helped me build the strongest background and gave me the professional and academic experiences to get to where I am.”

Andrew became who he wanted to be because of his circumstances; he never wrote himself off; he drafted his own story. “We are not beholden to the odds stacked against us,” he said about ignoring societal statistics, pushing through, and taking charge of what happens in your life. “A lot of people have gone through unique challenges and unique upbringings and life experiences and have done very well. Put yourself out there and reach high. You might be surprised at what happens.” ANNUAL REPORT 2019-2021
