the nickel and the nail
  • In November 1971, the Executive Committee of the California Community College EOPS Association (CCCEOPSA) adopted the Nickel and the Nail as the symbol of aid offered to many California Community College students through EOPS. This symbol, the EOPS logo, represents a successful effort at helping to provide the motivation and means for students to reach their educational goals.  Here is the story: 
  • “A young man in the deep South was walking down a dusty road to visit a lady friend, all too aware that the nickel in his pocket was all he had in the world.  That emptiness tore away at his self esteem. But as he walked, he noticed two gnarled horseshoe nails that were twisted together and lying by the road.  He picked them up and put them in his pocket, and as the metal jingled against his meager fortune, the young man walked a little straighter, with a little more pride and dignity. It is important to have “something to jingle.” 
  • EOPS works to enhance self esteem, foster pride and dignity, and motivate people to more effectively define and pursue career goals.  
  • The nails twisted into a puzzle, suggesting the problem has yet to be unraveled for helping people who, by circumstances of the society in which we live, have been limited in meeting their own educational challenges.
what does eops mean to me
What does EOPS mean to me?
  • “The EOPS/CARE program along with the wonderful staff is a very important and vital entity on campus helping students to achieve their educational goals… if it were not for the book voucher program, many students like me would not be able to afford the ever escalating costs of school books thus we would not be able to attend the classes we need.”
  • “EOPS is an important factor in my education. It has given me the ability to obtain higher education without having the stress of the cost of books and supplies. EOPS has given me the opportunity to enroll in the courses I need through Priority Registration.””
