The College of the Canyons Alumni Hall of Fame welcomed three new faces into its ranks during an induction ceremony Friday at the college’s Valencia campus.

The purpose of COC’s Alumni Hall of Fame is to honor those who have achieved outstanding professional or personal success or served the COC community.

The first inductee was Janice Dollar, a vice president and regional services manager for Wells Fargo & Co.

Dollar is a longtime resident of the Santa Clarita Valley and attended Canyon High School. She studied at COC before going to UCLA to earn her degree in political science.

Dollar called her time at COC “a gift.”

“As an (alumna) I hope we all continue to offer students the experience that I was able to experience,” Dollar said.

The second inductee was Mark Savage, an alumnus and retired COC assistant golf coach. Savage is also a Los Angeles County Fire Department Battalion Chief in the Santa Clarita Valley.

“Going to COC was a terrific experience that I will always cherish,” Savage said. “Being inducted into this hall of fame is just icing on the cake.”

The last inductee was John Cave, the president of Aerospace Dynamics International.

Though Cave did not attend COC, he was selected to enter the hall as a “friend” of the college to recognize his support of the school.

Aerospace Dynamics International has donated almost $1 million to COC’s Centers for Applied Competitive Technologies program since 1998. Aerospace Dynamics International has also donated the space to house the program.

Cave credited COC with helping his company expand and said he is proud to continue working with the college.

The trio joins 26 other individuals and organizations who have been inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame.
