Three finalists for the position of president/superintendent of the Ohlone Community College District in Fremont have been announced by the Fremont college district's board of trustees.
The final three candidates are Cecilia Cervantes, president of the College of Alameda; Gari Browning, who is currently vice president of instruction for the College of the Desert in Palm Desert; and Laurence Spraggs, president of Broome Community College in Binghamton, N.Y.
"We are extremely pleased with the high caliber of candidates that applied to be president of Ohlone College," Garrett Yee, president of the district board of trustees, said in a statement. "Ohlone College has a great reputation as an academic institution and is recognized as one of the top community colleges in California."
All three are expected to meet with Ohlone students, faculty and staff during campus forums April 14. The hour-long meetings, which will also be the subject of live webcasts, will be held at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. in Classroom 2133 of Ohlone's Fremont campus.
