Two members of the Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees will visit Chemeketa Community College this Friday, April 18, 2014. Board Chair Shoubee Liaw made the announcement Monday evening, April 14, following an executive session of the board.

The site visit is part of the board’s consideration of Chemeketa President Cheryl Roberts’ candidacy for the presidency at Shoreline. Liaw and Board Vice-Chair Tayloe Washburn are scheduled to make the trip.

Roberts was on the Shoreline campus Friday, April 11, for a day of interviews with the trustees, college staff and two open forums.

Before going to Chemeketa, Roberts served as Vice President for Instruction at South Seattle Community College. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Seattle University, a Master of Arts in Student Personnel Administration in Higher Education from Ohio State University and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from Seattle University.

During Monday’s announcement, Liaw also said that the other candidate, Campus Dean and CEO at the University of Wisconsin-Marinette Paula Langteau, has withdrawn her name from consideration.

Shoreline’s position has been open since June, 2013, when former President Lee Lambert left for the chancellor position at Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz. Leading the college since that time has been Interim President Daryl Campbell. Campbell served as vice president for administrative services at Shoreline since 2008.
