BRIEF: Pierce College President Alexis Montevirgen resigns

Pierce College President Alexis Montevirgen has announced Thursday his resignation. 

Montevirgen said in an email that he plans to step down from his position by the end of the academic term in June due to personal and health reasons. 

While it has been an extremely rewarding and fulfilling two years serving this college and this District, there are some private health and personal matters that have recently emerged in my life which I can no longer simply ignore and that require me to reevaluate my ability to effectively continue serving as your college president at the same time,” Montevirgen wrote. “I hope that you will respect my privacy in addressing these matters and I thank you in advance for your understanding.”

Montevirgen also said he will work with district leadership to make sure a transition plan is in place, especially as the campus begins planning to return for in-person instruction.

“Although I am sure that there will be many other opportunities before my departure to thank you personally and to reflect on my time at Pierce, I thank you now, the entire campus community, for these last two years,” Montevirgen wrote. “I am confident that this college will continue to navigate whatever transitions lie ahead and that it will continue to lead the region as a premier institution of higher education for the students and the local community it so proudly serves.”

It is uncertain who will be taking over following Montevirgen’s departure.
