by Sarah Wood
Dr. Antonio Pérez, one of the nation’s longest-serving community college presidents, will step down in August after 23 years at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC).
When Pérez was in high school, his guidance counselor told him that he wasn’t college material.
“There is always someone who doesn’t believe in you, but you have to believe in yourself,” said Pérez.
