There is going to be new leadership at the City Colleges of Chicago.

Mayor Daley named Cheryl Hyman as chancellor Wednesday. She's a one-time high school dropout who went on to get a master's degree, become a community leader and a top executive at Commonwealth Edison.

Gery Chico has been named chairman of the board for City Colleges. The former chief of staff to the mayor spent six years in a top position in the Chicago Public Schools.
