LBCC Alumna Appointed to the Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults
Last month, LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn appointed Long Beach City College alumna Karen Reside to the Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults. Reside is retired from a long career in the nonprofit sector supporting the Long Beach community. “I am honored to be able to contribute to the well-being of all seniors in Los Angeles County and look forward to serving to advance their interests,” said Reside.
“Through her work with the Gray Panthers, Karen has demonstrated that she is serious about addressing some of the biggest challenges facing our seniors, who are too often overlooked,” said Supervisor Hahn. “I know she’ll serve LA County’s seniors well here.”
Reside currently leads the Long Beach Gray Panthers group, a chapter of the nationwide movement for social justice and inclusion. Reside grew up in Lakewood, graduated from Long Beach City College, and retired from the Long Beach Boys & Girls Club in 2012.
The Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults is tasked with advocating and advising the Board of Supervisors and other county entities regarding the needs and welfare of Los Angeles County residents 60 and older.
