Cheng voted Foothill-De Anza board president

 

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District's board of trustees has a new president. Pearl Cheng was elected to replace outgoing president Bruce Swenson at the board's Dec. 6 meeting.

"I am delighted to serve as board president even at such a challenging time," Cheng said in a prepared statement issued by the district. "Foothill-De Anza is a wonderful community asset with outstanding students, faculty and staff. I will continue to work hard as part of a team to keep us moving forward."

Cheng, who joined the board in 2008 to fill a vacancy and was elected in 2009, worked for eight years on the board of education for the Cupertino Union School District and has assumed leadership roles with the Santa Clara County School Boards Association.

She lives in Cupertino and for many years has worked at NASA Ames Research center, where she is the associate director for management operations in information sciences and technology.
