Theresa Sanders, who headed Suffolk County Community College’s board of trustees over the past four turbulent years, has handed the chairman’s role to attorney Christopher Murray, who was elected unanimously.
Sanders, who remains on the board, said it was, “time for me to rest a bit,” after two terms in the unpaid post. The 10-member board oversees the three-campus, two-year college, which with 25,000 students is the largest in the state system.
Sanders has successfully guided the board through the exit of former president Shaun McKay.She also worked successfully to get Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone to double the amount of county aid to the college, to $3 million.
