Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 25, 2015 3A |m James Wilson Staff Writer Leah West finished her time on the Feather River College board of trustees last Thursday. Fellow trustees wished her well, and expressed their sadness in seeing her go: West was voted onto the board in 2008. She announced her intention to resign at this year's January meeting. Last month, the trustees agreed to appoint a provisional trustee rather than holding an expensive election. Over the last month, five candidates submitted applications to fill West's position. Board members will review the candidates, and more than likely make their selection, during the April 16 meeting. "You will be missed," Board Chairman John Sheehan told West. "Leah brings a different approach to shared governance." The college provided a cake for West's last day, and awarded her a plaque of appreciation.

Pierson informed the board that Feather River College now has an official Facebook page with the name of"Goldy Eagle." Additionally, various athletic teams and organizations at the college already have their own Facebook pages. FRC has also entered the Twitterverse, Pierson said. The college's Twitter account is @FeatherRiverCol. "Another goal the committee has is to develop strategies to market the college," Pierson said. Pierson showed the board three different college logos currently in use. She also noted there are two different slogans used as well -- "Mountains of opportunity" and "A beautiful place to learn." "Do you think it might be time for a change?" she asked rhetorically. Quincy Star Follies' large cast of volunteer community members gathers for a picture after last year's performance.
