Both forums will take place at Madera Community College Center’s Forum Hall (AM-120) on Tuesday, Feb. 5.

The first public forum will feature Dr. Claudia Lourido-Habib, the vice president of Madera and Oakhurst Community College Centers. Her forum will run from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Angel Reyna, who is the vice president of instruction at Renton Technical College in Washington state, will be at the second forum, which will run from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.

To find potential candidates, the State Center Community College District used the services of the Association of Community College Trustees to conduct a nationwide search, said Lucy Ruiz, the district’s executive director for public and legislative relations.
Ruiz said the process is continuing with background checks on the candidates. She said a screening committee reviewed applications and conducted initial interviews.
Here’s a look at each candidate’s career:
