New Cuesta College board member sworn in
On Dec. 10, the Cuesta College Board of Trustees swore in Pete Sysak as the District 4 representative. Sysak was elected to the Board in the Nov. 4, general election. He replaces Charlotte Alexander and will serve a four year term representing the city of Arroyo Grande and the unincorporated communities of Oceano and Nipomo.
“I am looking forward to helping with the continued success of our students,” said Trustee Sysak. “Accreditation will always be a high priority, along with the bond and developing future opportunities in the South County.”
Sysak served as the Police Chief and Director of Public Safety at Cuesta College for 17 years (1991-2007), past president of the Cuesta College Management Senate, and past chairman of the San Luis Obispo County Criminal Justice Administrators. He has been a resident of the south county of San Luis Obispo since 1977 and today is the owner of J&P Avocados in Arroyo Grande.
