Bethany Taska

San Bernardino Valley College leadership is changing, with Dr. Stephanie Lewis, Anthony Castro, and Bethany Tasaka all stepping into new roles.

In July, it was announced that Lewis will serve as Dean of Science for two years while Dr. John Stanskas is temporarily the Vice Chancellor of Educational Services and Support at the California Community College Chancellor's Office. In an email sent to the campus, Vice President of Instruction Dr. Dina Humble said she is "confident that under Dr. Lewis's guidance, the Science division will continue to thrive and build upon the strong foundation that Dr. Stanskas has established."

With Lewis assuming this new role, it opened up the position of interim Dean for Mathematics, Business & Computer Technology. Due to the significance of this position, and after careful consideration, it was decided to split the duties between mathematics faculty chair Anthony Castro and mathematics faculty member Bethany Tasaka. Tasaka will serve as interim dean for the first year, with Castro taking over for the second year.

Putting two people in this role is in line with SBVC's goal of providing "ample opportunities for professional development and career growth within our talented team," Humble said.
