The President’s Circle will be a select group of distinguished professionals from varied industries within Bakersfield and the San Joaquin Valley. They will be there to provide insight and counsel to President Sonya Christian on critical strategies facing the College.
As industry leaders with diverse skill sets, council members will provide the breadth and depth of experience from business, industry, government and the community. With Bakersfield College moving into its second 100 years, the President’s Circle will serve a vital role in providing leadership to her and to the College.
Membership will be by invitation only. Terms will begin in July and its members will serve three year terms. The group will meet three times a year in full session, but may ask specific businesses leaders to assist the President as needed.
The mission of the Circle is to develop a strong advisory, communication and advocacy relationship between Bakersfield College, individual businesses and community leaders. Its goal will be to increase the awareness of the role and value of the College, its programs and its need for community support.
