Hilda Solis is Class of ’79, Not Class of ’80

Secretary of Labor nominee Hilda Solis graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 1979, in case there was any question.

There’s a bit of confusion about the date online; a few sources say 1980. The Cal Poly website itself said 1980, which led Who2 editor Hans Holznagel to write them for clarification.

Here’s the very nice reply from Dr. Ron Fremont of university relations:

Thanks for writing to us. We have made a correction. Hilda Solis graduated in 1979.

We therefore say 1979 in our Solis profile.
