YUCAIPA—The San Bernardino Community College District board of trustees has chosen Cheryl Marshall to serve as interim president of Crafton Hills College.
Marshall was elevated from the position of vice president of instruction. She has been at Crafton Hills since 2007 and is credited with managing the college’s comeback from the most serious challenge in its history when it was put on probation by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges in 2009.
Marshall was designated the college’s accreditation liaison and worked with college staff to implement the commission’s recommendations, achieving Crafton’s return to full accreditation in February 2011.
Marshall will temporarily replace president Gloria Macias Harrison, who is set to retire on July 2.
Marshall, who has worked in the private sector and taught business at Cal Poly Pomona, Claremont Graduate School and Azusa Pacific, acceded to the position of associate dean of business and director of the Center of Excellence at Mt. San Antonio College before coming to Crafton where she oversaw three academic divisions and helped formulate the college’s educational master plan.
“I have a deep respect for my colleagues at Crafton Hills and have enjoyed working with them for the past five years,” Marshall said in a news release. “I look forward to a new adventure and to continuing the great progress we’ve made as an educational institution.”
