Sacramento Voices correspondent Courtny Thomas has a special affinity for Sacramento City College. Like many South Sacramento residents, she is continuing her education at the campus on Freeport Boulevard. For the next three days, Thomas will profile a person who made a similar journey, and who today helps students just like herself — Irma Sandoval Rodriguez. The stories were written in conjunction with Thomas’ journalism class at City College.
