Rarely does a new candidate for public office emerge that possesses the experience, expertise and overall aptitude to step in and capably serve the community right out of the gate. Dr. Edel Alonso is such a person. As her former colleague at College of the Canyons (COC), I urge those in her district to cast their vote for Edel and elect her to the Santa Clarita Community College District Governing Board of Trustees.
Edel has dedicated her professional life not only to teaching, but to understanding and shaping education at all institutional levels. She possesses a doctorate in educational and organizational leadership and has put that to good use at COC where she served in multiple leadership roles, helping to positively shape the campus and its functions. Most importantly, being a lifelong educator, she is passionate about student learning and achievement.
