• University of Redlands School of Business Excellence in Teaching Award

• League of Women Voters Citizen of Achievement

• San Bernardino City Unified School District Visual and Performing Arts Committee

• President, Kiwanis Club of Highland

Last November, I was appointed College Trustee and since that time have fought for you and helped deliver significant results:

• Hired new presidents for San Bernardino Valley College and Crafton Hills College

• Won restoration of full accreditations for both colleges

• Began the District’s long-term strategic plan

• Provide transparency and inclusion during Board Meetings

Vote for Dr. Anne L. Viricel for San Bernardino Community College District Trustee so I can continue to fight for you and the young adults in our community! I am not a politician; I am simply a concerned citizen and educator looking to use my skills to give back to our community and I would greatly appreciate your support.
