Ohlone College Appoints New Trustee for Newark Seat
Fremont, CA—Vivien Larsen was appointed as the newest member of the Ohlone College Board of Trustees, representing Newark, at the May 11th meeting. Larsen is a former high school counselor at Newark Memorial and Vice-Principal at Newark Middle School. She has been instrumental in helping to transition many of her students to college and was instrumental in helping to implement high school to career pathways into various STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines.
Her career, spanning over 30 years, has been largely involved with education and community and public service. She has been involved in Avanzando-Newark, a group started in 2008, to advance and empower Latino youth, their families and their community. She was instrumental in preparing the City of Newark Master Plan and East Bay Regional Parks Master Plan which she feels has given her insight in “strategically planning for the future.”
Ms. Larsen replaces trustee Bill McMillin who passed away in March after a long term battle with cancer.
