The Board of Trustees of Shoreline Community College voted unanimously at their meeting on Monday, April 21, 2014 to offer the position of President to Dr. Cheryl Roberts “subject to negotiations.”

Roberts is currently president at Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Oregon, a position she has held since 2007. Roberts previously 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.

“I’m thrilled to be joining a premier college that is focused on students and student achievement,” she said by phone from Oregon. “There’s an indomitable spirit at Shoreline.”

Since June, 2013, the campus has been under the leadership of Interim President Daryl Campbell, who took over when Lee Lambert left for Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona. Campbell had been the Vice President for Academic Services since 2008.

“I congratulate the board and the college on the selection of Dr. Roberts as Shoreline’s next president,” Campbell said by e-mail while on an extended trip in Asia for college business. “Her knowledge of Washington’s community college system, vision and long track record of success at Chemeketa combine to create exactly the right formula to propel Shoreline Community College forward. “I will work closely with Dr. Roberts over the next few months to assist a seamless transition.”
