Ribbon-Cutting Cancelled Out of Respect for Loss of Esteemed Colleague

March 23, 2023 Torrance, CA

As El Camino College mourns the tragic loss of Board of Trustee President Ken Brown, the college has cancelled the Ribbon Cutting scheduled for Monday, March 27.

The sudden loss of our friend and colleague has sent shockwaves throughout our campus community, and no doubt throughout the many networks and circles that Trustee Brown traveled through. He was tirelessly dedicated to the mission of providing quality educational opportunities to students. He will be dearly missed.

To respect the privacy of the Brown Family, please direct expressions of sympathy for the family to Kerri Webb, El Camino’s Public Information Officer at

In honor of Ken Brown’s life and legacy, the flags around El Camino College will be flown at half-staff until further notice. Any further information will be provided when available.
