Pasadena Area Community College District Board Elects Alton Wang as President for 2024-2025 Term

Published on Friday, April 12, 2024 | 5:48 am

The Pasadena Area Community College District (PACCD) Board of Trustees has elected Trustee Alton Wang, who represents Area 7, serving the area covered by the Arcadia Unified School District which encompasses parts of the cities of Arcadia and Temple City, to serve as Board president for 2024-2025. 

Wang, along with other officers, was elected during the Board’s meeting on April 10. 

“I want to thank my colleagues for this vote of confidence to serve as president of the board, and I look forward to working collaboratively with our college administration, staff, faculty, and students to move PCC forward together,” Wang said in a statement. 

“I am also grateful to our community here in the San Gabriel Valley for their ongoing support of the critical work we do here at PCC, and I want to thank my community in Arcadia and Temple City for their ongoing faith in my leadership.”

The Board of Trustees is the policy-making body for the Pasadena Area Community College District, which administers and oversees Pasadena City College (PCC). It consists of seven elected members, each representing one of the seven trustee areas: Pasadena, South Pasadena, Arcadia, La Cañada Flintridge, Rosemead, San Marino, Sierra Madre, Temple City, and a portion of El Monte. 

During the meeting, the Board of Trustees also elected Steve Gibson, who represents Area 3 (Northwest Pasadena and part of southwest Altadena), as Board vice president, and Ryan Liu, who represents Area 6 (including portions of Rosemead, San Gabriel, El Monte, Temple City, and Arcadia), as Board clerk.


Liu and Trustee James Aragon, who represents Area 2 (including the foothill communities spanning from Altadena to Sierra Madre), were sworn in to the Board of Trustees earlier this month after being elected to their seats in March. Tammy Silver was also sworn in as trustee following her reelection to Area 4 (including the central and eastern areas of Pasadena and portions of Temple City and unincorporated San Gabriel).  

The Board also recognized Kristine Kwong, who represents Area 5 (South Pasadena, East San Gabriel, portions of Temple City), for her leadership during her term as board president from July 2023 until April 2024. 

 “I want to commend Trustee Kwong for her service as board president over the last year and thank her for her commitment to serving our college, the district, and most importantly, for always being a champion for our students,” Dr. José A. Gómez, PCC’s Interim-Superintendent, said. “I am confident Board President Wang and the board leadership team of Vice President Gibson and Clerk Liu will continue moving PCC forward with their unwavering dedication to ensuring PCC is providing the best possible education for our students.”

Established in 1924, Pasadena City College provides the San Gabriel Valley with a high-quality, innovative learning environment that inspires student success. PCC’s academic programs encompass a variety of degrees, transfer programs, certificates of achievement, and occupational skills certificates that challenge students and support progress toward their goals. 

PCC is consistently one of the top colleges in the state for transfers to the California State University and University of California systems.
