Orange County litigator William Marticorena (ME ’70) has been featured in a recent issue of the Los Angeles Daily Journal for his work at his alma mater, Bosco Tech, where he serves as chairman of the board and interim head of the school, a temporary responsibility he has taken on while a new president is sought.
“I have two full-time jobs; there’s no way around it,” Marticorena said in the March 30 article entitled “Head of the Class,” by Shane Nelson. Marticorena, who graduated from Bosco Tech in 1970, is a partner at Costa Mesa-based Rutan & Tucker LLP which specializes in government and regulatory practice. He has been a member of the school’s board of trustees since 2014 and has been instrumental in reshaping the board by incorporating younger individuals with diverse backgrounds and professions.
The Daily Journal piece quotes Suzanne Harrell, financial advisor and chair of the Bosco Tech board’s financial committee, “Bill is one of the smartest people I know. He’ll just attack any problem and always finds a solution…and I think he’s just done a fantastic job.”
Through the addition of Advanced Placement biology to next year’s curriculum, Marticorena is helping oversee current efforts to add a biotechnology project-based learning component to the school’s existing technology programs, as well as expanding the school’s language offerings to include Latin and Mandarin. He foresees filling the school’s leadership role until the end of the year, when a new president will be named.
