San Jose's Evergreen Community College District has appointed a new chancellor to lead its two campuses in the wake of a scandal, that was the subject of an ABC7 I-Team investigation.

Rita Cepeda, 58, will take over for Rosa Perez who will retire next month.

Last week, a district investigation confirmed what the I-Team found. That Perez may have broken state laws when she hired and promoted her partner.

The two owned a home together and took paid trips, possibly in violation of district policy.
