Delta College will see two returning trustees and one new trustee who won seats in the November election and will serve or continue to serve on the College’s Board of Trustees.
In Area 3, which includes north Stockton, Trustee Janet Rivera will serve her seventh term. First elected in 1994, Rivera is the College’s longest-tenured trustee.
Charles Jennings, who recently retired from Delta after a long career as a music professor and dean, was elected to serve Area 4, which includes Lodi and rural communities as far west as Rio Vista.
In Area 7, which includes Manteca and Escalon, Trustee Catherine Mathis ran unopposed and will serve her second term on the Board.
The three will work alongside fellow trustees Steve Castellanos (Area 5, northern district), Teresa Brown (Area 6, Tracy), Carlos Huerta (Area 2, central Stockton) and Jennet Stebbins (Area 1, south Stockton).
“I am excited that we now have a full board and I look forward to working with all the trustees in continuing our efforts toward student success,” said Delta College Superintendent/President Kathy Hart.
Delta’s seven-member Board, which meets twice a month, provides elected representation for residents throughout Delta’s district, which includes most of San Joaquin County and portions of five other counties. The Board is tasked with approving the College budget and providing policy oversight, among other responsibilities.
