On Monday night, the Cypress City Council recognized members Leroy Mills, Doug Bailey, and Prakash Narain as they conclude their time on the governing body. As part of the tribute to the three members, Cypress College President Dr. Bob Simpson and Dean Dave Wassenaar, of the College’s Business and Computer Information Services Division (and a board member on the Cypress Chamber of Commerce), presented the officials with campus I.D. cards making them “Honorary Chargers.”
