Pam Haynes & Amy Costa
The Board of Governors elected Pam Haynes as the President of the board.
President Haynes has vast experience serving students in the CCC system. As a CCC student herself (Santa Monica), she advocates for the success of the community college students that she represents. This is the first time that the Board has a woman and an African American in the role of President since its implementation in 1967.
The Board also appointed Amy Costa as Vice-President.
A press release
from the CCC Chancellor’s Office describes the leadership assignment of President Haynes and VP Costa.
“Haynes is the first African American to lead the governing board of the nation’s largest system of higher education, and this is the first time two women will serve as president and vice president.”
The leadership of these two powerful women on the Board of Governors will introduce a legacy for future women leaders in the CCC system and beyond.
