The new president appointed to Folsom Lake College has also held leadership roles at two other area community colleges.
The Los Rios Community College District trustees chose Rachel Rosenthal to lead the Folsom campus. Rosenthal has been vice president of instruction at Sierra College since 2007. She began her career in education at American River College, where she was dean of planning, research and development.
"We think she will be a great fit for this young and growing campus," said Ruth Scribner, board president.
Rosenthal begins her new job July 2.
She replaces Thelma Scott-Skillman, who announced her retirement last fall.
Rosenthal will earn $180,369 a year.
