PRLog - Sep. 17, 2010 - ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Dr. Ned Doffoney, Chancellor of the North Orange County Community College District (NOCCCD), was chosen as co-recipient of the Aaron and Elijah Lovejoy Award from the Black Chamber of Orange County.  Dr. Ding-Jo Currie, Chancellor of Coastline Community College District, was also chosen to receive this award.

The Aaron and Elijah Lovejoy Award is presented to individuals in the Southern California Community who have contributed to the freeing of African Americans either economically or educationally.  The award will be presented to both Doffoney and Currie at the Black Chamber of Orange County’s Annual Gala Reception on Thursday, September 23, at the Disneyland Hotel.

Doffoney became Chancellor of the NOCCCD in July 2008.  During his tenure, he has helped the NOCCCD Board of Trustees lead the District through unprecedented state budget cuts brought on by the economic recession.  In addition, he has established a number of new goals, including focus on student success through participation in such initiatives as the California Leadership Alliance for Student Success (CLASS), initiation of a new District Education and Facilities Master Plan, and an expansion study for the North Orange County Community College District Foundation.
