Statement From County Executive Marc Elrich Regarding the Departure of Dr. DeRionne Pollard

For Immediate Release: Thursday 29 April

Montgomery County is losing an incredible leader. Dr. DeRionne Pollard has made a tremendous impact since assuming leadership of Montgomery College in 2010. Dr. Pollard led the college in a new strategic direction and worked, in partnership with Montgomery County Public School and the Universities at Shady Grove, to develop programs and initiatives that created a stronger link between the public school system and higher education. She has worked closely with the business community because she understands that colleges and universities provide the talent pool for businesses. We will miss her vigor, her commitment to equity, and her work for access to a quality education for all our residents. 

On behalf of the people of Montgomery County, I congratulate Dr. Pollard as she assumes the presidency of Nevada State College. I am confident that she will do great things at Nevada State College as she did here in Montgomery County.
