Four will go on Oregon site visit

Four representatives from Shoreline Community College will travel to Oregon as the next step in the finding a new college president.

Board of Trustees Chair Shoubee Liaw will be accompanied by Board Vice-Chair Tayloe Washburn, Faculty Senate President Kira Wennstrom and Special Assistant to the President Don Schultz.

The group is scheduled to travel to Chemeketa Community College Friday, April 18, 2014. The visit, which will include interviews with Chemeketa officials, is part of the Board’s consideration of Chemeketa President Cheryl Roberts’ candidacy for the presidency at Shoreline.

“I’m very pleased to have Kira and Don join us on this important visit,” Liaw said. “I have tremendous respect for them and value their experience and insight.”

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

Before 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.

Daryl Campbell has been serving as Interim President at Shoreline since June, 2013, when former President Lee Lambert left for Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz. At the time and prior to Campbell taking the position, board members decided that an interim president wouldn’t be eligible to apply for the permanent position. They also made it clear that the board may select any qualified person for the position. Campbell had been vice president for administrative services since 2008.
