Don’t ignore RCC students

When Governor Deval Patrick breezed into Roxbury Community College last Tuesday with $20 million in his pocket for the beleaguered school, Ricardo Canuto was 3 miles away, behind the counter at the Kentucky Fried Chicken on Washington Street in Dorchester.

“I didn’t know he was going to be there,” said Canuto, a second-year student at RCC. “None of the students knew he was going to be there. It’s like they kept it a secret. If I knew, I would have gotten someone to work my shift and I would have tried to talk to the governor.”
