The Coast Community College District has selected a new president for Coastline Community College.
Loretta Adrian was unanimously approved by the district Board of Trustees on May 19. Coastline is based in Fountain Valley and has locations in Garden Grove, Westminster and Costa Mesa.
Adrian, the current vice president of student services at Skyline College in San Mateo and has worked at San Diego Mesa College as the dean of student affairs and development, will take over the post on July 1.
"It's a leadership dream come true to me," Adrian said.
Adrian will replace Marilyn Brock, who has been filling in since former President Ding-Jo Currie was appointed interim district chancellor in January 2009 and then officially appointed chancellor in November.
The district went through a nationwide search to fill the position, and Adrian was chosen from about 50 qualified candidates, said Jerry Patterson, president of the Board of Trustees.
