One of the newly-elected LACCD Board of Trustees members, Sydney Kamlager, the District Director for State Senator Holly Mitchell and a long-time early childcare advocate who worked at the non-profit, Crystal Stairs, will have her Community Swearing-in this Saturday, July 11th at 2:00 pm. The ceremony will take place in the historic, Steven’s Square, named in honor of previous LATTC president, Thomas Stevens, Jr., outside the Magnolia Hall atrium.
The eight-member, non-partisan Board of Trustees guides policies and oversees the operations of the District’s multi-million dollar budget, operations and curriculum standards. The Board of Trustees serves a vital role in supporting the students, staff and faculty of the system’s colleges by developing partnerships between civic and business leaders and institutions, and by advocating for increased state and federal funding for the community college system.
Kamlager is excited to launch her service to the Los Angeles Community Colleges District Board on the Trade Tech campus, in the same location that, only one year ago, President Obama gave a speech about “economic patriotism” and the heroic efforts of community colleges in helping to build the middle class; and seven years ago, then senator, Obama addressed an audience in the same place.
LACCD BFSA members have committed to coming out and showing their support for Kamlager. They are asking you to come out and join them.
