The South Orange County Community College District board has appointed Eric S. Norby, brother of Orange County Supervisor Chris Norby, to fill the seat vacated by the recent resignation of board member Dorothy Fortune.
Eric Norby, who is also his brother's chief of staff, was administered the oath of office late Thursday at a board meeting during which the 10 candidates for the post were interviewed.
"I am looking forward to working with him," Chancellor Raghu Mathur said Friday.
Fortune, a board member since 1996, resigned last month amid allegations that she had moved out of the area she represented.
The district's two campuses are Saddleback College in Mission Viejo and Irvine Valley College in Irvine.
