Beverly "Bev" Bailey, secretary to the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District Board of Trustees, was named the 2015 recipient of the Professional Board Staff Member Award for the Pacific Region of the Association of Community College Trustees.
Bailey has worked with the district in a number of positions since 1975. She was described by chancellor Jannett Jackson as "an excellent writer, a leader among her peers and (she) displays the traits we wish for all our employees."
Board of Trustees president Donald L. "Dobie" Gelles wrote in the nomination application, "Bev is a person that goes beyond the word service ... She is a jewel."
Bailey, who graduated from Chabot College and lives in Alameda, previously received the district's Chancellor's Award three times during her 40-year tenure.
