Fentanyl, a drug that has been running rampant within the United States, is becoming a serious issue within the Inland Empire. The region that once was called “The Meth Capital of the World” now fears that fentanyl will cause another drug epidemic. Riverside City College Viewpoints journalists, in partnership with California Humanities through the Democracy and Informed Citizen Emerging Journalist Fellowship Program, looked to answer three questions: 1) How is the drug entering the region? 2) What does fentanyl do to a person who consumes it? 3) What solutions does the Inland Empire have?
Assistant professor of Automotive Technology Paul O’Connell was recently awarded an “Excellence in Teaching” award from the Inland Empire/Desert Regional Consortia on May 2. The award is given to CTE professors who have shown excellence and gone above and beyond as faculty in the classroom.
