The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District (CLPCCD) Board of Trustees has appointed Retired Community College Counselor and Department Chair Maria L. Heredia to its Board of Trustees. Heredia will hold the Trustee Area 4 seat (Castro Valley and parts of Oakland), which was formerly held by longtime Trustee Donald L. "Dobie" Gelles, until his unexpected passing in May, and will hold the position until at least the next scheduled election for governing board members in November 2020.

Heredia has four decades of public school experience, including 10 years at the high school level and 30 years at community colleges. She has previously been employed at Merritt, Laney, Chabot and City College of San Francisco, where she served as a counselor/coordinator and department chair and managed a comprehensive and diverse counseling office. Throughout her career, Heredia has been elected to three terms as department chair and three terms as part of the academic senate, as well as received appointments to multiple key committees including curriculum, articulation, budget and planning. She has been a member of The Centro Legal, the la Raza Board in Oakland, a number of Southwest voter registration drives and many community and parent education associations.
