Tahoe college board honors Gaskin for years of service

Provided to the Tribune

The Lake Tahoe Community College Board of Trustees approved a resolution recognizing Lori Gaskin for her 17 years of service.

Gaskin, LTCC vice president of academic affairs and student services, will be leaving LTCC in August to take the president’s position at West Valley College in Saratoga. She applied for the LTCC President position last year.

She was surprised by the resolution because she didn’t read through the entire agenda before the meeting.

“I didn’t think I’d be speechless, because that’s not my style,” Gaskin said.

She thanked her colleagues for their support over the years, and former LTCC President Guy Lease for letting her pursue her academic career.

“I don’t think I could’ve stopped you if I wanted to stand in your way,” Lease said.

All the board members, administrators and faculty present thanked Gaskin for her work at the college.

“I know I’ve abused your staff and yourself, but you will be truly missed,” LTCC Board President Kerry David said.

Susan Middleton, who is the former dean of student services and will fill Gaskin’s position on an interim basis, said Gaskin has been extremely helpful in teaching her about the position.

“I know she’ll always be there for me even when she leaves,” Middleton said.
