Fola Odebunmi, a professor of economics at Cypress College, has joined the Community College Association’s executive board. She will serve as treasurer of the statewide faculty organization following her April 12 election to the post.
Odebunmi has served as a CCA board member for 4 years. She also is a former president of the Cypress College Academic Senate and the United Faculty of the North Orange County Community College District.
Dr. Simpson called her election an “outstanding recognition” for Odebunmi, as well as for the faculty organizations she represents, and for Cypress College.
“Since Fola is the first UF member elected to a state office, this achievement is quite and honor for both UF and the district,” colleague Linda Borla noted.
