Juice friend Jim Moreno elected President of Coast Community College District Board of Trustees




Lacking a transom of any sort, we at the Orange Juice Blog instead checked our e-mail inbox and stumbled across this delightful bit of news from our good friend Jim Moreno, who has been doing a great job on the CCCD Board, dealing with endless funding cuts while keeping all classes, avoiding layoffs, and keeping an amicable working relationship with former political rivals on the Board:


Huntington Beach resident former County of Los Angeles Deputy Supervisor Jim Moreno has been elected to serve to as the president of the Coast Community College District (CCCD) Board of Trustees for 2012. Moreno was unanimously elected board president by his fellow trustees at an organizational meeting this week. Trustee Mary Hornbuckle was elected vice president and Trustee Lorraine Prinsky was reelected to the Clerk position.

Moreno has served on the Coast Community College District Board of Trustees since 2006. This is his second term as president. He currently resides in Trustee Area 1, which includes Huntington Beach, Seal Beach and Westminster.

During his career on the Board, Moreno has served on the Audit Committee, chaired the Career and Technical Education Committee and been the trustee representative to the Orange County Community Colleges Legislative Task Force and the District Foundation. Moreno also serves on the Community College League of California’s Advisory Committee on Education
Services and is an elected representative to the California Community Colleges Trustee Board.

Re-elected to the board last year, Moreno has also served his community as the Past Chairman of the Citizen Participation Advisory Board for the City of Huntington Beach, the past Senior Deputy for a Los Angeles County Supervisor, a volunteer at the Live Oak Adult Literacy Program teaching English and Citizenship and as a Member of CHP Community Advisory Board. Moreno is a graduate of California State University, Long Beach.

“I am honored to serve again as president of the board,” Moreno said. “We are facing important challenges at our colleges and increasing budget cuts from the state. We need to find ways to fully fund our colleges and continue to provide pathways for our students to attain their educational goals.”


There’s more, but it gets boring. Congratulations Jim!
