It is time for CR to begin a healing process. Let go the ugly, let go the upsetting, and move forward. Delta may well function with their new "impressive" leader. Let go, and let's get busy building CR to its highest, fullest and best potential. Let's be a united front and make it all right for our community, putting this behind us, being wiser about choices and get back to what we're here for: Our Students!!!
The Delta College claims the controversy which came about with Marsee's recent ruling and running over (and perhaps down) the College of the Redwoods was considered before they hired him. Good Luck, folks! And, thank you for taking him off our hands! We’ll be watching over the next year or so as Delta discovers just what they’ve gotten themselves into.
Did the search committee ask any of those who were held in sway by the controlling, tormenting, contentious man who is now –thankfully- a person in CR’s past? One thing is evident; he had the ability to draw all people together, on one side – albeit against him!!
He leaves the campus staff well aware of the need to look into a potential person being considered for hire. There is a newfound awareness not to accept potential President/Superintendents at face value.
Truly one can see from one conversation with Marsee that he is very taken by himself, and his abilities (?), and seems to go to great lengths to uphold his personal opinion of himself, despite the new areas he moves into. He is an actor and a very good salesperson – regarding himself and his personal opinion of same. He seemed to think he could change the climate of Humboldt County. Clearly he suffered from a "little big man" syndrome.
Don’t get me wrong -- he is an educator, for sure! The campus is well aware, well versed, and more enlightened about what to look for in a leader, and perhaps wiser about taking people on their own personal "spiel" rather than looking into his background as a result of Marsee’s stint on the CR campus. Hopefully this cantankerous individual educated the BOT at CR. One word of advice for the upcoming search committee when seeking CR’s new leader: GOOGLE!!
