Support of President Larry Frank to remain College President of LATTC
“We retain confidence in President Larry Frank and petition for him to remain as the College President of LATTC so our faculty may focus on continuing good work to support our students and our community.”
Amidst the LA Times articles written without the inclusion of our voices, we, the faculty at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College would like to voice our support of Larry Frank as our college president by signing this petition. Instead of wasting time and energy on publicly slandering our colleagues and peers whose opinions or styles differ from our own, we choose to focus our efforts on educating our students and on programs that continue to drive our equity-focused mission forward with the purpose of social mobility, career advancement, and lifelong learning for our students.
Therefore, we the faculty of LATTC are deeply united in moving our college forward to continue our good work because we are invested in the success of our community.
We choose to celebrate one another’s successes. We choose to support and uplift each other. We choose not to tear each other down in order to rise up ourselves. We believe that our good work will speak for itself. We believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and together we know that we can move forward. We need this. Our students need this.
Therefore, we sign this petition in support of Larry Frank as our College President. We recognize the many innovative opportunities and resources that President Frank has helped establish and supported on this campus as our college leader, and we trust that under his guidance, our faculty will continue doing the great work that transforms the lives of our students and our community.
