Hammonds began his service on the Board in 2012, after serving as the Dean of CCC in Page from 1998 through 2012. He handed his duties off to Smith in a small ceremony at CCC Page campus on Wednesday.
"It's been quite interesting and quite fun being part of the growth of an institution," Hammonds said during the ceremony. "I'm thrilled to have been part of it. This is a great institution. I've enjoyed it, and I wish Coconino Community College the very best."
The next Governing Board meeting will be held Sept. 18, 2019 at 4 p.m. in the CCC Lone Tree board room.
