“It is a great honor to be asked to lead one of the finest educational institutions in Los Angeles. My years at UCLA and the City of Los Angeles have given me many opportunities to partner with L.A. Trade-Technical College and I appreciate the breadth of its contributions to our community. As downtown L.A. experiences a renaissance, Trade Tech is perfectly placed to build new training partnerships and educational opportunities that will lead our students to graduation, certifications, and careers. ”
