Mayor honored by college group

The Community College League of California is honoring Mayor Luis Alejo with a 2010 Distinguished Alumni Award.

The award recognizes people whose attendance at a community college helped them achieve educational and professional goals and who have served their communities.

Alejo graduated from Gavilan College in Gilroy in 1984. He completed his undergraduate education at UC Berkeley, received a law degree from UC Davis and earned a master's degree in education from Harvard.

He has served on the City Council since 2008, and is running for the 28th Assembly District seat. He is a staff attorney for Monterey County Superior Court.

The award will be presented at the league's annual convention Nov. 18-20 in Pasadena.
