Dear Whittier,

As many of you know, my Whittier College experience was transformative in my life, and it has been my great pleasure to provide leadership to the College that gave so much to me at such a pivotal moment in the school’s journey. I am writing today to let you know that I’ve decided to step down as the chair of the Whittier College Board of Trustees. I’ve derived deep personal fulfillment from my work as chair of the board and the many conversations I’ve had with community members. While I will remain on the Whittier College Board of Trustees, I felt strongly that now was the time to make way for new leadership to chair the board. In the immediate, Vice-Chair Kenya Williams, has volunteered to serve as chair in an interim capacity.

I look forward to working with Kenya and the board as we identify the next permanent chair.
