I call upon and challenge the college administrators and trustees to explain publicly why smoking is still occurring on campus and what they are going to do about creating a healthier campus environment, free from deadly cigarette smoke.
I look forward to that response, hopefully right here on this page.
Trustees made a good choice with Lindsay
I was extremely happy to hear about the Glendale Community College Board of Trustee’s decision to hire Dawn Lindsay as the permanent superintendent/president (“Supt. No longer interim at GCC,” March 16).
Having worked with Lindsay during my time at Glendale Community College, I know how incredible an asset she is to the campus.
Lindsay’s style of leadership is one that puts a great deal of effort toward building consensus. She holds the line when needed, but is not afraid to take input from faculty, classified staff and students throughout her own decision-making process.
Simply put, Lindsay is the best captain to have at the helm as the college fights to ride out the financial storms ahead. I praise the college Board of Trustees for their choice and wish Lindsay the very best in her tenure as superintendent/president.
Editor’s note: Ferguson is the former president of the Glendale Community College associated student body.
Funny how that worked out
It always amuses me that when the students of a school do well on a standardized test it is due to the brilliant leadership of the administrators and committed teachers, but when they fall short, the test is flawed (“Middle school scores fall short,” March 13).
Schiff should explain before voting
With the House of Representatives planning to vote on the Senate version of health-care reform, I called Rep. Adam Schiff’s local office.
