Kindred Murillo named first permanent female president of Lake Tahoe Community College

Tahoe Daily Tribune June 4, 2011
Kindred Murillo is set to become the first permanent female president of Lake Tahoe Community College and will begin later this year, the college announced Thursday.

“She was the unanimous choice of the board and the staff (via results of the online survey),” said Roberta Mason, board of trustees member and head of the presidential search committee. “We all felt she is just what the college needs at this time in our history”

Murillo was chosen from four finalists in the college's presidential search to replace interim president Steve Maradian. She will be the fourth president in the college's history and will start in her new position as early as July 1.

“I'm really excited. It's such a student-first kind of college,” Murillo said. “They really believe in focusing on the student. It's such a great culture to work in.”

She's also looking forward to living, hiking, biking, skiing and, perhaps, learning to kayak in the Tahoe area, she said.

Several things put Murillo ahead of the 60 or so applicants for the position, but one of Murillo's traits was a strong factor, Mason said.

“Of course, with most colleges right now, the biggest challenge is finances,” Mason said. “And she has such a strong background in that.”
