Dennis Anderson is known for two passions: theater and Mt. San Jacinto College. A 40-year veteran at MSJC, he took his last bow as vice president of instruction at the June 28 Board of Trustees meeting. But it isn't his final curtain call.
Retirement aside, Anderson will continue his commitment to the college both behind-the-scenes and out front. He will spend the summer volunteering with a crew of students and instructors on a film project to celebrate the college's 50th anniversary next year. He also recently joined the board of the MSJC Foundation to help support the students and the college.
"I could never leave MSJC," Anderson said, with several partially packed boxes on the floor and conference table in his office on the San Jacinto Campus. "I've put so much of my heart and passion into this place. I need to be involved in this college in one way or another for the rest of my life."
Anderson, 65, has served MSJC since he was 24 when he was hired as a theater instructor. Over the next four decades, he would become chair of the Theater Arts Department, Dean of Academic Programs for the San Jacinto Campus and in 2008, was named vice president of instruction.
MSJC Superintendent/President Roger Schultz praised Anderson for his integrity, talent and dedication to the college and its students during Anderson's 40 years of service.
"I have a great team, but life without Dennis in executive cabinet is going to take some getting used to for all of us," Schultz said.
During the Board meeting, trustees and others thanked Anderson for his years of service.
Elmer and Emily Anderson moved to the San Jacinto Valley with their son Dennis in 1956.
Dennis attended Hemet schools while his father served as a bus driver for the Hemet Unified School District. Years later, his mother would become the theater box office supervisor at MSJC.
Dennis was nine the first time he saw the outdoor play. By the age of 10, Dennis appeared in "All My Sons" with the Ramona Players and during his years at Hemet High, drama teacher Ron Loch inspired his passion for the theater arts.
After graduating from Hemet High in 1965, Anderson said he spent some time studying at San Diego State University until he ran out of money and returned home. He attended MSJC, earning his associate's degree in 1967. He transferred to UC Riverside, where he received a bachelor's in theater.
Anderson continued with the Ramona Pageant and played Felipe in 1969-70.
"Dennis has given us much to aspire to," Sisk said.
I count it among my own career highlights to be able to have worked with Dennis. We all can appreciate his calm confidence and his ever-pleasant demeanor, as well as his vast knowledge of the arts in general and the art of teaching in particular. His shoes won't soon be filled. We'll miss you, Dennis."
Anderson called his retirement bittersweet. He said he will miss the people he has worked with over the years. He praised the MSJC faculty, adding that he has complete confidence leaving the future of instruction in such good hands.
Still, he looks forward to the future. The days ahead are filled: traveling with his wife, playing with his four grandchildren, continuing as director for the Ramona Pageant and exploring something he hasn't done in 20 years: acting. Anderson is taking on a lead role in the Ramona Hillside Players production of the comedy "The Men of Mah Jongg" in September.
And, of course, he looks forward to his work with the students and the Foundation. He will help celebrate the anniversaries of his two great passions in 2013: the Ramona Pageant's 90th anniversary and MSJC's 50th.
"I've watched this college grow from just a few little buildings in a cow pasture to what it is today and where we're going," he said, noting future facilities like the 110,000-square- foot Cultural and Performing Arts Center on the San Jacinto Campus.
