Shelley Shumate was a student the first year Solano College offered a biotech program. The next year she was working in the manufacturing division of Genentech.
Shumate on Wednesday attended the dedication of the new $34 million, 32,000-square-foot Biotechnology and Science Building at the Vacaville campus across the street from her employer.
She was one of about 75 people who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The building was funded with voter-approved Measure Q monies.
