Michael Poindexter named SCC Interim President

At the Jan. 13 monthly meeting of the Los Rios Board of Trustees, Board members approved the appointment of Michael Poindexter as Interim President of Sacramento City College.

He will succeed Dr. Kathryn Jeffery, who is leaving SCC to take the presidency at Santa Monica College.

Michael will begin his service as Interim president on February 3. He has served at SCC since 2007 in his current capacity as Vice President of Student Services, and he has more than 25 years of administrative experience at both two-year and four-year institutions.

According to an email sent to all employees, Los Rios Community College Chancellor Brian King said, “We are fortunate to have a team of three outstanding vice presidents at Sacramento City College—including Michael, VP of Instruction Mary Turner and VP of Administration Laduan Smedley—who work together closely and will partner to make the transition smooth.”

A more formal search for a full-time president will begin immediately, King said, adding that his goal is to have the next permanent president named by the end of the Spring 2016 semester.
