The Solano Community College Governing Board has an important task Monday night: The trustees are expected to name the school’s interim-superintendent/president.
Last week, SCC Superintendent Jowel Laguerre was appointed chancellor of the Peralta Community College District.
Laguerre will take over from Jose Ortiz, who is retiring after three years in the position. Laguerre is expected to officially begin work in July.
“It’s really bittersweet,” Laguerre said last week. “But I’m really excited (about the new opportunity) and the things we have done at Solano.”
Laguerre said at the same time he will miss the people at SCC, especially the faculty and staff, who are always focused on making the college better.
