The memorial service for Dr. Richard J. Sneed, Chancellor of the South Orange County Community College District from 1986-1993, will be held on Thursday, February 1 at 10:00 am at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Laguna Hills. Dr. Sneed passed away at his home on December 16 after battling a long illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and former colleagues.
Dr. Sneed led the district – which was then known as the Saddleback Community College District – at a time of great growth. Irvine Valley College had received its accreditation as an independent institution, thereby creating a multi-college district. It was a time of positive change and advancement for the district – multiple groundbreakings and building grand openings occurred at both colleges to keep up with student enrollment, which rapidly grew to more than 33,000 students in 1992.

Put on a brand new shirt
I'll get home early from work
