Reedley College’s new president hits the ground running
Jerry Buckley, the new president of Reedley College, never planned to work in education, but a state budget cut turned his life in a completely new direction.
“After my bachelors degree, I had planned on entering the parks service,” Buckley said. “I was going to be a California State Park Ranger. I had my uniform. I had my name badge. I was all ready to go to work at San Onofre State Park as a naturalist, and Jerry Brown, in his first rendition as governor, cut the budget and killed my job and changed my life.”
