The Placer Herald August 8, 2010
Sierra College President Leo Chavez has announced his resignation.

Effective June 30, 2011, Chavez will step down as president of the community college, where he’s led as president for four years.

In a letter to the entire college staff, Chavez wrote that there is nothing negative about his decision to retire.

“I wish I could give you a simple reason for my decision, but there are many, some simple and some complicated, so all I will say is that it is time,” he wrote. “I told myself a long time ago I would leave when things were going well rather than hang around too long and be pushed out as has happened to far too many of my colleagues nationwide.”

Chavez earned his PhD in history from the University of Michigan and later taught history at San Jose City College, served as president of West Valley College in Saratoga and was chancellor of Foothill-De Anza community college in Los Altos Hills. As president of Sierra College, he overseas approximately 22,000 students and 1,500 employees.
