The San Diego Community College District named Anthony Beebe as new president of San Diego City College.
Beebe succeeds Lynn Neault, who has been the college’s interim president since July. His first day at City College will be Aug. 1.
Beebe assumes the new role after having served the past eight years as president of San Diego Continuing Education, which provides noncredit adult education at seven SDCCD campuses, the District said. Beebe has also served in other educational posts around the state and elsewhere.
“Both in the state of Washington and in California, he has distinguished himself as an educational leader,” said Constance Carroll, SDCCD chancellor. “He has transformed the Continuing Education division into what one important government agency described as the best in the state.”
The San Diego Community College District serves about 130,000 students annually through three two-year colleges and seven continuing education campuses. The three colleges are San Diego City College, San Diego Mesa College and San Diego Miramar College.
