MISSION VIEJO : 2 Finalists Vying for College Presidency
Two community college administrators, one from Los Angeles and the other from Oregon, have been selected as finalists for the post of Saddleback College president.
They are Ned Doffoney, academic affairs vice president at Los Angeles City College, and Daniel L. Larios, dean of instruction at Tillamook Bay Community College.
Doffoney has held his position since 1989. He has a doctorate degree in institutional management from Pepperdine University and master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Southwestern Louisiana.
Larios, before going to Oregon, served as Saddleback’s dean of technology and applied science from 1986 to 1992.
He holds a doctorate in education from Nova University in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., a master’s degree from Cal State Bakersfield and a bachelor’s degree from Cal State Fresno.
Saddleback Community College District trustees are scheduled to interview Doffoney and Larios and announce their choice in January.
The new president will replace Constance M. Carroll, who resigned in November, 1992, to accept the presidency of Mesa College in San Diego.
Calvin L. Nelson, a Saddleback faculty member, has been serving as acting president in the interim.
