Carole Goldsmith was named chancellor of the State Center Community College District on Monday.
Goldsmith, 56, has been the president of Fresno City College since August 2016, and before that was president of West Hills College Coalinga. She also worked as the vice chancellor of educational services and workforce development during her 13-year tenure at West Hills.
Speaking to the public on Monday, Goldsmith said she was “humbled” and “grateful for this moment.”
“Our district is well positioned, incredibly well positioned, to be able to start this next chapter for both being a catalyst for individual learning and self improvement, and to be an active partner in economic development that our Valley needs.“
