Westminster campus Dean named Manager of the Year
Coastline Community College—which has campuses in Newport Beach, Garden Grove, and Westminster—has selected Dr. Vinicio Lopez as Manager of the Year. The announcement was made at the Coast District Managers Association (CDMA) annual picnic held June 7.
Dr. Lopez is the Dean of the Coastline Community College Le-Jao Center campus located in Westminster. Programs under his purview include English as a Second Language and General Education. He has been with Coastline Community College since 2009 and recently completed his Doctorate of Education at Pepperdine University.
"I am humbled and honored to be recognized by my peers," said Dr. Lopez, "but any individual accolades are minor compared to the pride I feel when I see our students succeed."
Each year, CDMA selects a Manager of the Year recipient from all Coast District Campuses and the Coast District administrative office located in Costa Mesa. Fellow Manager of the Year recipients for 2013 include Dwayne Thompson, Associate Dean of Research and Institutional Advancement at Golden West College; Sean Rivell, Manager of Grounds at Orange Coast College; and Martha Parham, Director of Public Affairs at the District Office.
