The Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees approved tenure for three faculty members at the March 17, 2010 meeting. Receiving tenure were:

  • Melinda Lane, Dental Hygiene
  • Claire Murata, Information Literacy Librarian
  • Cynthia Okawara, Academic Advisor

“These are three of the finest tenure candidates I’ve seen,” said Board Chair Roger Olstad, a former University of Washington faculty member. “I’ve had some experience with this (at the UW) and while the criteria differ, as they should, the rigor with which this institution approaches tenure is every bit as robust.”
