Monrovia City Official Appointed to Citrus College Foundation Board

Monrovia City Treasurer Steve Baker has been named to the Citrus College Foundation Board of Directors.

A Monrovia resident since his early childhood, Baker attended Citrus College, where he was involved in the college’s Performing Arts Program.  He was elected City Treasurer in 2005 and re-elected in 2009.  Baker also serves as Monrovia’s official city historian and is currently chair of the Santa Anita YMCA Board of Directors.

“The Citrus College Foundation is very fortunate to have Steve as one of its newest members,” said Citrus College Foundation President Tom Gerfen.  “He is highly respected for his fiscal expertise and civic leadership, both in Monrovia and in the San Gabriel Valley region.”

As one of the Foundation’s newest board members, Baker joins 21 directors who raise funds for scholarships and academic support programs that assist Citrus College students in their efforts to complete their college educations, enter the workforce, and transition to four-year colleges and universities.

“Steve Baker’s experience as Monrovia City Treasurer, along with his extraordinary sense of history will be a tremendous asset to the Citrus College Foundation,” commented Dr. Geraldine M. Perri, superintendent/president of Citrus College and executive director of the Foundation.  “As the college approaches its Centennial in 2015, I am confident he will have a valuable role in helping the Foundation connect with both current and potential donors, as well as other members of the community.”
