For our speaker, Vincent Garcia, the struggles and opportunities involved in a college education are immediate and vivid both from his own experience and the lives of the young LGBT persons he serves. Vincent has over 18 years experience in student recruitment and college advising. Prior to joining Point, Vincent was Associate Director of Admission at California Lutheran University, where he led the Multi-Cultural Recruitment Team and developed freshman recruitment travel strategies. In his first year, Vincent saw Cal Lutheran's multi-cultural applications increase by an average of 30%. He was involved with both campus events planning and communication teams, while hosting events for organizations including Young Black Scholars, College Summit, and Upward Bound. Vincent demonstrates a strong commitment to both access and equity in higher education, while committing himself to numerous charitable organizations including the National AIDS Training program, The California AIDS Ride, and to the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women to fight women's cancers in Los Angeles.

Last year at Campbell Hall, a 63-year-old Episcopal school in North Hollywood, California, longtime college counselor Vince Garcia was fired for putting false information on student recommendations.Mr. Garcia, who was well regarded by colleagues at other private schools, cited awards students hadn't won and quoted teacher comments that were false or copied from other recommendations, says the Rev. Julian Bull, Campbell Hall's headmaster.
The school subsequently rewrote recommendations for 55 students and notified colleges that had received the forms.None of the admissions decisions were changed.Mr. Garcia declined to comment on the episode or Campbell Hall's actions but says he remains "committed to working with students to find the best path-for them-into higher education."Mr. Garcia is now an admissions officer at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks; Matthew Ward, the school's dean of undergraduate enrollment, says the school is confident Mr. Garcia has "the appropriate level of accountability to be an asset to the team."Mr. Garcia is now an admissions officer at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks; Matthew Ward, the school's dean of undergraduate enrollment, says the school is confident Mr. Garcia has "the appropriate level of accountability to be an asset to the team."
