Bergre Escorbores has resigned from the board of trustees as Suffolk County Community College after just 18 months, creating a second board vacancy on the 10-member board.

Escorbores, principal at Brentwood’s South Middle School, stepped down late last month because of a lack of time to devote to the position, officials said. Trustee terms are normally seven years, but Escorbores, a gubernatorial appointment who also heads the Brentwood School District’s administrator’s union, took over from a longtime holdover and his term was set to expire in June.
