Doris Givens named president of Kansas City Kansas Community College

The Kansas City Star July 2, 2011
Doris F. Givens was selected Thursday to be the next president of Kansas City Kansas Community College.

Givens, vice chancellor for educational services for the Kern Community College District in Bakersfield, Calif., will be the first woman and the first African-American to be president in the college’s history.

The board unanimously selected Givens, who will begin her duties Aug. 8.

Givens was out of the country when the public vote took place. But in a written release she said she sought the position in part because of the college’s strong academic and financial footing. She also pointed out that the new entities coming into the county, including Cerner, Hollywood Casino, Livestrong Sporting Park and Google, could provide several opportunities for the school.

“They’re great training opportunities for the college, a chance to create a workforce for new jobs that they will bring,” Givens said. “The casino alone will certainly help our hospitality area to grow, and Google is so exciting, right on the cutting edge.”
