    Clarification: Pauline Bondonno

    A Tower article on the Merritt College Tobacco-less Club (“Merritt Tobacco-less Club wins $20K national grant,” Nov. 23) failed to identify Pauline Bondonno, executive director of Community Health Education Institute, as the person in charge of putting the grant money into effect over the next 12 months.
    Bondonno has headed tobacco prevention programs at Merritt College for the past two years, through grants from the California Department of Health and, previously, through the Alameda County Health Services Tobacco Prevention Program.
    She created the Fresh Air Art Contest, and has worked to further tobacco prevention and awareness at Merritt College, Laney College, and College of Alameda for the past five years, and at Berkeley City College for the past 11 years.
    She was responsible for writing the grant to have e-cigarettes banned in the district, which they now are, and she most recently wrote a winning grant for College of Alameda to make it a smoke-free campus.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
