West Hills Community College District appointed its third chancellor in history Tuesday, approving Kristin Clark, the current president of the Lemoore campus.
The board of trustees approved Clark’s appointment at its monthly meeting, and she will assume duties on July 1, said West Hills spokesperson Amber Myrick in a news release.
Clark replaces Stuart Van Horn, who is retiring after serving four years as chancellor. Clark was appointed as president of West Hills College Lemoore in 2016.
Board President Mark McKean said trustees were excited about the choice.
“We look forward to her student-centered focus and enthusiasm that will bring success to all of us as we prepare to return to more traditional education,” he said.
The search for Van Horn’s replacement began in fall 2020. West Hills has campuses in Lemoore,
