Hartnell College President Valeau Named Alumnus of the Week by UC Berkeley Alumni Association

April 14th, 2006

Edward J. Valeau, president of Hartnell College and a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, has been named the California Alumni Association (CAA) Alumnus of the Week for April 10-16.

Valeau, who earned his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley's School of Education in 1983, received the CAA's alumnus award because he recently won the Harry Buttimer Distinguished Administrator Award from the Association of California Community Colleges Administrators (ACCCA).

That award, named after a former chancellor of the Contra Costa Community College District, is bestowed annually to a community college CEO for demonstrating leadership, integrity and contributions to the professions, college and community.

Valeau has been president of Hartnell since 1995.
