State Center Community College District Chancellor Paul Parnell has chosen a Southern California educator to be the next president of Clovis Community College.
Lori A. Bennett, currently the vice president of student learning at Moorpark College, would assume the post in July if the district’s Board of Trustees approve her at its June 14 meeting. Bennett would replace Deborah Ikeda, who is retiring after 35 years with the district.
Bennett was one of three candidates selected during a nationwide search. Each visited the campus on May 11 to speak at a community forum, where one candidate – Gale Gibson Gayle – failed to tell the public she had been fired from her previous job.
