Younis Resigns from NMC Board of Regents (February 14, 2011)

The Northern Marianas College today announced that the Chairperson of the NMC Board of Regents, Maria “Paz” Younis, has resigned from the Board.

“On behalf of the entire College community, I want to thank Regent Younis for her dedication and commitment to the Northern Marianas College,” said NMC Interim President Lorraine T. Cabrera. “She has always been a staunch supporter of the College and its mission to help improve the quality of life for all residents.”

Younis began serving her term on the Board of Regents in July, 2009. She had served as a vice chairperson for the Board and was eventually elected as its chair in October, 2010.

“During her tenure on the Board, Regent Younis has helped guide the College through one of its difficult periods following the announcement of NMC’s Show Cause status,” Cabrera said.

“Despite resigning from the Board, I am absolutely confident that Regent Younis will continue to support and contribute to NMC’s growth,” added Cabrera. “We wish her luck on all her future endeavors.”

Cabrera indicated that Younis’s resignation will not affect the institution’s efforts to prepare its March 15, 2011 Show Cause Report.

“We are on track to meet our March 15, 2011 deadline to submit NMC’s Show Cause Report,” Cabrera said.
