Foundation welcomes newest board member, looks ahead to 20th annual Student Success Community Breakfast

Cheryl Lee is the newest member of the Shoreline Community College Foundation Board.

Helping students achieve success and removing barriers to student’s educational and career goals is the mission of The Shoreline Community College Foundation. Providing scholarships to deserving students is key to fulfilling this mission.

The Foundation Board of Directors welcomes their newest member, Cheryl Lee. Cheryl is an Attorney and Business Advisor. She has a BS in Mechanical Engineering, an MBA, and a law degree from the University of Washington. Cheryl worked as an Engineer in Boeing Commercial Airplanes for 11 years and with Microsoft for 11 years in Business and Marketing. She served two terms on the Shoreline City Council and was the youngest Asian American elected to office in Washington State in 1997. While serving, she helped to incorporate the city and to oversee the establishment of its first police department.

Cheryl’s personal mission in life is to make a difference in the lives of those around her. She was selected by the Seattle Times Editorial Board as one of “Six New Rising Stars of the Next Generation.” She has also received numerous awards for her work in the community including the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation’s Living Pioneer Award and Women Empowered, International Examiner’s Community Voices Award, Korean-American Profession Society’s Community Service Award, and the South Korean President’s Award for her work in advancing the causes of Korean-Americans.

“Cheryl will make an incredible addition to our Board of Directors and I am confident she will be a great asset to the Foundation, the College, and our students,” said Mary Brueggeman, Foundation Executive Director. “We are thrilled to have her join us!”

For the 2017-18 school year, the Foundation awarded a staggering $149,000 in scholarships. The Student Success Community Breakfast is the primary event where these much-needed scholarship funds are raised. Shoreline students are lucky to be able to count on the support of so many caring donors to help them engage and achieve their educational goals.
