Incumbent Rosemary Thurston, running for the governing board from trustee Area 3, has worked hard the past four years to address Solano Community College’s accreditation issue.
When Thurston joined the board, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior College cited the school for micromanaging. Thurston said that in the four years since, she has been the change agent to remove all sanctions. A recent evaluation from the commission gave Solano College an “outstanding evaluation,” she said.
“I feel we are marking good progress as an institution, even faced with difficult financial constraints,” she said. “I feel I still have something of value to offer to the process.”
