Brenda Parker, appointed assistant dean of student services, will oversee financial aid, the health center, women's center and programs for disabled students and economically disadvantaged students. Parker previously directed special student services at a college in Salinas.
The new assistant dean of student outreach, Jeff Shimizu, will oversee recruitment of high school students and organize lectures and training sessions for college faculty to which local high school teachers will be invited, Moore said.
