Honors society recognizes Citrus College president

Citrus College Superintendent/President Greg Schulz was recently selected as one of 28 community college administrators nationwide to receive Phi Theta Kappa’s Paragon Award for New Presidents.

The annual award, presented by the international collegiate honor society for two-year college students, recognizes those who have served their campuses for less than three years and demonstrated outstanding student support. This year saw over 400 community college personnel eligible for the recognition. Schulz was one of three recipients from California.

Members and advisors of Beta Nu Eta, the Citrus College chapter of PTK, nominated Schulz for the honor because of his efforts to connect with students and “outstanding leadership style,” a news release read.

“Nominating Dr. Schulz was an incredibly easy decision. Our students see Dr. Schulz in action around campus and recognize his support of our chapter’s service to the college and the community,” Citrus College student Jessie San, president of Beta Nu Eta, wrote in a statement. “We knew he would be selected to receive the award because he has done everything possible to support students. We have met with him, talked with him, watched him support our athletic teams, visit classes, attend Club Rush and so much more. He always visits students throughout campus and tries to get to know us personally. This is definitely a well-deserved honor.”
