What sets Norwalk apart from many other cities is that it has its own college. However, the name of it is not Norwalk College, but Cerritos, the name of a neighboring town. Long Beach City College is not named Lakewood College, nor is Cerritos Auto Square named the Norwalk Auto Square. In addition, when someone says he goes to Cerritos College, no one asks, "By any chance do you know what city that's in?" That's because they simply assume by the name that the college is in Cerritos.

Officials at Cerritos College in Norwalk have been urged by a group of students to hire more minority faculty members and to add more ethnic courses to the curriculum. The students said they are upset because the faculty is predominantly Anglo, while about two-thirds of the nearly 19,000 students are minorities. The issue surfaced recently when a black instructor, who was teaching part time, was not interviewed for a full-time position as a history teacher.

Reggie Morris Sr. was holding his own at Manual Arts. Fremont and Dorsey had strong programs. So did Palisades and Granada Hills Kennedy. Azzam, in his early 20s, was trying to build a program from scratch. "I don't like losing and oftentimes the games weren't competitive," he said. "I developed the philosophy our goal wasn't to become Crenshaw or beat Crenshaw.
