Thursday last day for application to IVC Board vacancy


IMPERIAL – Those interested in seeking an appointment to the vacant Imperial Valley College Area 5 board seat will have until Thursday at noon to turn in their completed packets to the President’s Office.


The seat was vacated by the resignation of Norma Sierra Galindo, who stepped down Dec. 7 when she took office as a board member at the Imperial Irrigation District.


Qualified applicants must be legal residents and registered voters of the Imperial Community College District, Area 5.


Trustee Area 5 encompasses parts of El Centro east of Eighth Street, a large rural area east of El Centro as well as parts of Heber north of Heber Road and west of Dogwood Road.


The IVC board is seeking to make a provisional appointment thereby saving the college the $25,000 cost of a special election.


Applications can be made online at
