By Cynthia Mendoza

           n Thursday, September
          13 IECN publisher and
          retired Crafton Hills Col-
lege President Gloria Macías Har-
rison held her first official
campaign kickoff at Mill Creek in
Mentone. Harrison is running for
San Bernardino Community Col-
lege District Board of Trustees.
  The event drew about 50 commu-
nity supporters including Yucaipa
Mayor Dick Riddell and staff, stu-
dents and administrators from
Crafton Hills College and long-
time friend and mentor Dr. Ernie
Garcia and his wife Dr. Dorothy
  During her remarks Harrison
touched on a few key points to pro-
viding students with a high quality
  Harrison began by saying that it’s
not enough to just care about stu-
dents, but that it’s necessary for
trustees to have experience and
knowledge in making the deci-
sions, including financial, needed
to do what’s best for students.
  As an educator who served both
in the classroom and administra-
tive positions a combined total of
over 45 years, Harrison has the
knowledge and firsthand experi-
ence necessary to make good,
well-informed policy decisions
that impact students.
  Harrison went on to say that get-
ting an education today is not the
same as it was 50 years ago, that
students today are facing unprece-
dented challenges that were not is-
sues 50 years ago, such as family
and living situations, all of which
can impact a student’s ability and
access to education.
  As a business owner, having co-
founded El Chicano Newspaper
over 40 years ago, and along with
her husband and daughter, running
what is now Inland Empire Com-
munity Newspapers, Harrison also
has hands-on, real-world knowl-
edge and experience in running a
successful business.
  Business skills, along with com-
passion and caring for the people
it serves are crucial for running
any business or institution and this
knowledge will no doubt be an
asset to the SBCCD board, espe-
cially in tough economic times.
