Haynes New Director of A & R and Financial Aid


Longtime district employee Tiffany Haynes from Porterville College has been appointed Director of Admissions and Records/Financial Aid at Cerro Coso.

“Tiffany is both well qualified and respected in her field and has 16 years of progressively responsible experience most recently serving as the Assistant Director of Financial Aid at Porterville College,” said Vice President of Student Services Heather Ostash. Haynes fills the position left vacant by the retirement of the previous director, Jennifer San Nicolas, in January.

A community college graduate, Haynes values the students she works with each day and enjoys doing what she can to make their college experience pleasant. Born and raised in Porterville, Haynes and her husband moved to Ridgecrest in February with their five children. Her motto in life is “characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.” Haynes is also a graduate of the Kern Community College District Leadership Academy.
