By Francine Tyler

The UC Santa Cruz Foundation has elected George Malloch of Belmont as president of the board, announced Daniel G. Aldrich III, assistant chancellor for University Advancement at UCSC. In addition, the Foundation has appointed 11 new trustees.

The Foundation promotes and supports academic programs, scholarships and fellowships, and capital improvements at UCSC through its private fund-raising efforts.

An attorney with Lanahan & Reilly in San Francisco, Malloch was born in Santa Cruz and has strong family ties to the area. He also has a lengthy history with UCSC. "I'm eager to serve the university in this new capacity," said Malloch, "and look forward to a very productive year as president."

Paul Irwin, principal of Executive Assistance Corp. in Watsonville, was named vice president. The two took office effective June 6.

Also on June 6, the newly appointed trustees began three-year terms.

Two of the trustees--Yolanda Dybdahl and Lynn Stegner--live in Santa Cruz. Also newly appointed are John Arriaga of Fair Oaks, Narpat Bhandari of Los Gatos, Marion Cope of San Francisco, Mary Doyle of Menlo Park, Barbara Higgins of Sunnyvale, Robert Holmes of Saratoga, Toni Landels Hyman of San Francisco, Gary Novack of San Rafael, and Loren Steck of Carmel.

"I am delighted that these talented and respected members of our extended community will dedicate their considerable energy and enthusiasm in support of UC Santa Cruz," said Chancellor Greenwood. "I am confident they will generate even greater appreciation for UCSC's teaching and research missions, and I hope they will help make new friends for the campus as well."

The addition of the new trustees brings the total board membership to 48. Following is a brief description of each new trustee:
