She will be officially seated as a trustee at the April 14 NOCCCD board meeting, after a 30-day waiting period.
Ms. Rodarte assumes the seat of Michael Matsuda, who resigned on January 1.
“As a lifelong resident of Anaheim, I am honored to have this opportunity to represent my community,” said Ms. Rodarte. “I thank the Board for their support and look forward to working alongside them to ensure that all students succeed at the North Orange County Community College District.”
