As a Las Vegas City Schools board member, Elaine Luna oversaw then-Superintendent Pete Campos, who has been a Democratic state senator since 1991.
Now their roles have been reversed.
On Jan. 9, Campos, in his new role as Luna Community College president, named Luna to serve as acting president while he’s away at the Legislature until its annual session ends in mid-March.
Campos, who started as president last summer, issued a memo to Luna, designating her as the acting president. The memo was copied to other college officials.
