PCC Athletics Dean Beverly Tate Resigns Post
Pasadena City College Dean of Kinesiology, Health & Athletics/Athletic Director Beverly Tate resigned her post, effective Mar. 1, to pursue other projects. Tate directed the athletics division since July, 2007
On an interim basis, the KH&A Division and all intercollegiate athletics matters will be under the immediate supervision of Dr. Jacqueline Jacobs, PCC vice president of instruction.
PCC Superintendent-President Dr. Mark Rocha met with the division faculty and staff to inform them of the change. According to the president, the current plan is not to search and appoint a new dean at this time, but to create a divisional faculty/staff committee to work directly with the administration in order to chart the future course of the division.
Rocha congratulated Tate for her work in the division the past 3-1/2 years.
"Beverly has done a great job under challenging circumstances and with declining financial resources," he said. "She has helped to prepare the division for the future."
Tate said she enjoyed her experience in leading the KH&A Division. Tate will take on other administrative duties and projects as assigned for the rest of the spring semester and then return to her tenured position as an English instructor in the fall.
During Tate's tenure, PCC won its first state team championship in women's athletics, the 2009 women's basketball title. PCC won several South Coast Conference crowns, including championships in women's volleyball and women's badminton.
Also under Tate's leadership, both women's basketball coach Joe Peron and women's volleyball coach Tammy Silva were selected as the SCC All-Sports Women's Coach of the Year for 2008-2009 and 2009-2010. PCC and Hutto-Patterson Gymnasium was the host site for the 2008 CCCAA women's volleyball and 2010 CCCAA women's badminton state tournaments.
