Modesto Junior College President Gaither Loewenstein greeted his new campus with an ice cream cone in hand Thursday. The mixer in the Fireside Lounge capped a day of settling into his office and meeting with his staff. The new president said he is planning no major changes.
"I'm very much hoping to blend in with what's already here and just try and do everything even better," Loewenstein said Thursday, adding that he hopes to provide "clarity and focus" through these lean times.
"I hope to reach out to the business community and make sure we're able to be effective partners. It's times like these when we do our most important work, and it's a challenge because it's also when we get our budgets cut," Loewenstein said.
