Lloyd A. Holmes, a veteran educator with a track record of removing barriers to student success, has become the next president of De Anza College. 

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District Board of Trustees voted unanimously on June 2,  to endorse district Chancellor Judy Miner’s recommendation that Holmes become De Anza’s fourth president since the college’s founding almost 53 years ago.Holmes, 49, was previously vice president of student services at Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y., a position he held with distinction for the past six years. Monroe served about 40,000 students a year at two campuses and has residence halls housing nearly 800 students and a university center where students can complete a baccalaureate degree. 

“I am honored to have been selected as the president of De Anza College,” Holmes said. “I have come to know De Anza as one of the leading community colleges in the nation. Together, we will do even greater things to positively impact our students, faculty, staff and community. I thank the De Anza family and Chancellor Miner for entrusting me to lead this great institution.”
