Office of the President

Message from the President

We are grateful that the SCCCD Board of Trustees took action at last night’s meeting to approve the replacement positions of faculty and staff that the college was authorized to advance.  During this unprecedented time and economic uncertainty, the College will continue to place importance on maintaining our commitment to educational access as we know this is an equity issue. The faculty and administrators that were approved display a keen understanding of the importance of our mission and how we will work tirelessly to keep our students engaged and progressing along their educational and vocational pathways.

We are excited to announce that we have filled three administrative vacancies that became open this past semester.  We welcome:

  • Cherylyn Crill-Hornsby, Dean, Academic Services & Social Sciences Pathways
  • Cyndie Luna, Dean, Academic Services & Fine Performing and Communication Arts Pathways
  • Derrick Johnson, Director of Athletics
