Strong track records of preparing students for the workplace have earned two community colleges the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. Santa Barbara City College in California and Walla Walla Community College in Washington state were recognized for the prize. "Just as Walla Walla makes sure its students have jobs, Santa Barbara makes sure they'll finish B.A. degrees," said Joshua Wyner, executive director of Aspen's College Excellence Program.
