I have attended and taught at Columbia College and my children and other relatives have attended Columbia and then transferred to state universities and the University of California with outstanding results.
Because of the excellent stewardship of Pat Dean, the Yosemite Community College District has grown in the number of attending students and the quality of the education and services offered.
After researching all the candidates, I believe Carolyn Lott to be the best choice to succeed Dean. She has the time to devote to this position. She is committed to serving students of all ages. Lott believes in fiscal transparency, responsibility and accountability. With Lott's background in teaching and facilitation, she will work well with trustees, teachers, administrators, and students to set and achieve goals. I believe the YCCD will continue to thrive, attaining even greater advancement under Lott.
