For Immediate Release: March 10, 2021

Board of Trustees gathered around a conference table in conversation

Roy Sahachaisere was sworn in as student trustee and participated in the first Coast Community College District Board of Trustees meeting of his term on March 3, 2021.

Student Trustee Sahachaisere attends Coastline College. He previously served as an officer of the Associated Student Government at Coastline College – one of District's three colleges.

"Trustees make every attempt to hear from our students and communities, yet there is no substitute for having a student at the table when discussing the future of the District," said Board President Jim Moreno. "I am so pleased that Student Trustee Sahachaisere stepped up to be the elected representative for his peers."

The District Student Council Selection Committee convened on February 19, 2021, and voted to elect Sahachaisere to serve as Student Trustee for the remainder of the previously vacant 2020-2021 term. Student trustees engage in discussions on items brought before the Board and provide an advisory vote.
