MONTEREY, CA - On August 29, 2019, the Monterey Peninsula Community College District Board of Trustees provisionally appointed Ms. Rosalyn Green as the Area 1 trustee representing Seaside and Sand City.

Ms. Green was selected from a pool of six candidates to replace Natalia Molina, who resigned her position as a member of the district’s board of trustees effective July 9, 2019, after accepting a career opportunity in the state of Arizona.

“We are delighted to welcome Rosalyn Green to the MPC Board of Trustees,” stated Board Chair Marilynn Dunn Gustafson. “Her personal knowledge of MPC; history of civic engagement; and commitment to education, diversity, equity, and inclusion made her stand out from a field of excellent candidates.”

Ms. Green is a lifelong resident of the Monterey Peninsula. She’s currently employed as a community organizer with Building Healthy Communities. She also serves as the Parent Advisory Council Chair with the Village Project, Inc.

Ms. Green expressed that she was inspired to serve as a trustee by, “my deep love of my family, my Seaside community, the education and support I received as a graduate of Monterey Peninsula College, and my desire to be of service. Our family believes in MPC.” 

Ms. Green will be sworn in as a member of the MPC Board of Trustees on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. She will serve Trustee Area 1 until the next election for governing board members in November 2020. 

David Martin, MPC Interim Superintendent/President, stated, “We look forward to the valuable perspective Ms. Green will bring to the Board of Trustees as we work together to transform lives through education.”
