State Center of Community College District (SCCCD) used the services of the Association of Community College Trustees to conduct a nationwide search for a new Reedley College president, and have narrowed it down to two candidates.
The first candidate, Donna F. Berry, has been the interim president of Reedley College since July 2018 and was vice president of administrative services at Reedley College for nearly seven years. Prior to Reedley College, Berry was at Porterville College for seven years as director of administrative services, director of business services and information technology, foundation treasurer and adjunct instructor.
Jerry Buckley has been the assistant superintendent/vice president of academic affairs at Santa Clarita Community College District since August 2013. He also served as vice president of instruction at San Diego Community College District and at Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District he held the positions of senior dean of planning research and institutional effectiveness, acting as vice president of academic affairs, dean, interim associate dean and professor.
Public forums will be held Jan. 29 at the Reedley College Student Center so members of the community and the college can learn more about the candidates and hear their vision for Reedley College and answer pre-submitted questions in the Student Center. If time allows, questions from the audience will be addressed. The deadline to submit questions is next Monday at noon.
