“Dr. Carroll not only meant so much to Miramar College, but she meant so much to the San Diego region,” said Dr. Wes Lundburg, president of San Diego Miramar College. “Her leadership led to the growth of the College and provided so many more opportunities for area students and the community. This is the least we could do to thank her for her support over the years.”
Dr. Carroll's tenure as Chancellor included the transformation of District campuses, making higher education more accessible, and helping students expand their opportunities while attending community college.
