Former Yuba College Vice President for Academic and Student Services Dr. Kevin Trutna was appointed president/superintendent by the Feather River College Governing Board.
The decision was announced Feb. 6.
Dr. Trutna assumed the position of interim president at Feather River College on Aug. 6, 2012.
Dr. Trutna served Yuba College’s vice president beginning in 2006, subsequent to holding the position of the Dean of Math, Engineering, Science and Health Occupations.
