The Board of Regents has appointed Cammeron Hodson as its new Executive Director of the California Tribal College. Mr. Hodson is the Vice Chairman of Wilton Rancheria and, until this appointment, served as an At-Large Member of the College’s Board of Regents.
He holds an MBA from the University of Utah and is in the final stages of doctoral studies in organizational leadership at USC. He has more than a decade of experience in education, from elementary through community college.
“I am excited to be a part of this project because I understand how critical education is and I know how much the California Tribal College can achieve,” said Mr. Hodson. “This institution can be an incredible catalyst for individual Native Americans as both tribal leaders and professionals and for entire tribal communities as they work to build futures for their people.”
Mr. Hodson succeeds Marilyn Delgado, who has served as Executive Director since 2012. She guided the project through its critical feasibility studies and analyses and helped build ongoing support from more than 60 California tribes and tribal organizations. Ms. Delgado is Tribal Chair of the Nor Rel Muk Wintu Nation. She has now become an At-Large Member of the Board of Regents.
“It has been a privilege to work on the CTC project as Executive Director and now as a Regent,” said Ms. Delgado. “We have made great strides moving the CTC from concept to initiative and now into its developmental stages. This is a work of passion and an amazing team effort with incredible, important opportunities ahead of us.”
