RCC leaders address students who need help with food and housing

Higher education may be a pathway to a better life, but life can certainly have its bumps while the learning is underway.

It happens with community college students as well, according to leaders at Rogue Community College, which maintains campuses in Medford, Grants Pass, and White City.

We get details on the situation and RCC's intended remedies, in an interview with college president Cathy Kemper-Pelle.
