Judith Valles has always been the first woman, or the first Latino, as she ascended the ranks of community college administration. Now, at the end of her first year as president of Golden West College in Huntington Beach, Valles would much rather be known as the executive who reversed the community college's 8-year enrollment decline. The 55-year-old woman has set out to raise the profile of the 23-year-old college by aggressively recruiting high school students, seeking minority candidates for Golden West's police training program and speaking before just about any group that will have her. A marketing campaign to tout Golden West's academic strengths also is expected to get off the ground this summer.

The professor stressed courtesy and helpfulness. "When a Spanish-speaking person comes on campus, you need to make that person comfortable and show that you care," she said. "The idea is to communicate." The students nodded their heads in agreement. A few minutes later, they spoke a few words of Spanish to show they had learned how to help Latinos who know little English. " Muy bien! Perfecto! " came the response. Then, in English, she added, "You deserve medals."
