Miya Walker appointed new director of college relations

Cerritos College has appointed Miya Walker as the new Director of College Relations.

As a Cal State University Northridge Bachelor’s Degree graduate in Emphasis of Public Relations and USC Master’s Degree graduate of Strategic Public Relations, Maya has pursued goals and aspirations within her career.

She began her career at Santa Monica College, and then made her way up to a university.

Her previous experience in her field includes Public Information Officer at Los Angeles Southwest College, and working for a public relations and public affairs firm called MMW Group for five years as a consultant with MMW Group for the Los Angeles Community College Districts bond construction programs.

With many warm welcomes and joyous comments on her newly appointed position, Walker is more than thrilled about working with such a welcoming team at Cerritos College.

Toni Grijalva, coordinator of community relations, said, “When former boss Mark Wallace left our department, it was broken up to different departments and every employee reported to different departments. But now with Miya on board it has brought the team back together.”

Walker said, “I was discovered in college at Cal State Northridge. Public Relations was work that I already had been doing even though I realized I wasn’t doing it.”

Walker has always been intellectually curious about things and wanted to know how things work. She is intrigued by the power of communication and being able to affect change through communication.

“I’m excited about being here at Cerritos College, and being able to apply the knowledge of my background to this position.”

Walker knew she has every intuition of staying the education field; that intuition has led her to a prestigious and well respected role in Cerritos College.

“I believe wholeheartedly in the mission of community colleges. I’ve always understood the importance of community colleges from experience, so I wanted to remain in this area.”

Walker plans on staying with Cerritos College long-term, fulfilling her dream of working with community college students.
