    David Boyd is running for the Board of Governors of Orange Coast College, Golden West College, and Coastline Community College. It looks like Coastline is mostly distance education. I think he's been at Taft for a long time.

    I'm from Ohio. Seeing the words "Taft" and "President" used in the same sentence scares the hell out of me! ;)

    If the President of Taft University wants to be involved with community colleges in California, then it seems like the obvious choice would be Taft College, located in Taft. But maybe that would be too confusing.

    Incidentally, the City of Taft, and by extension Taft College, are also named after William Howard Taft. The original name of the town was "Moron", but this was changed to "Taft" in the 1920s, about the same time that the college was established. Apparently "Moron College" was rejected as a school name.

    And why did people think of Taft when they thought of Moron?
