Joseph Castro is known as a Bulldog through and through. After all, he is the president of Fresno State. But, he is also an alumni of UC Berkeley. Last night (Feb. 22), the Cal Latino/Chicano Alumni club of the Central Valley honored Castro with a public service award. The reception took place at the Mexican Consulate’s office in north Fresno.

Before the ceremony, GV Wire had a chance to speak to Castro regarding the contentious immigration issues that is taking place nationwide. Castro reiterated his long-held stance that he is the president of every student and he wants the Valley to be proud of all Bulldogs (watch the full interview above).

Also honored was Fresno labor attorney Ana De Alba.
