The Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) over the weekend elected Roberto Uranga, a Long Beach Community College Trustee, as its Chair for the next calendar year. Uranga is the first Latino to serve as Chair of the organization that oversees over 1,200 community colleges nationwide.
“I'm extremely proud to have received this honor from an organization that advocates for our community colleges,” said Trustee Uranga. “I am humbled to be the first Latino to serve in this capacity, and honored to bring this recognition to Long Beach."
Uranga is a longtime trustee at LBCC and last year launched a campaign to run for the April 2010 7th District City Council seat. His wife, Tonia Reyes Uranga, was about to be forced out of that very seat by term limits.
