State Board of Community and Technical Colleges member Shaunta Hyde visited Shoreline Community College on Thursday, April 14. Hyde, Director of Global Aviation Policy for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, met with President Lee Lambert, Vice President for Academic Affairs John Backes, Dean of Workforce Programs Dave Cunningham and Jim Hills, Special Assistant for Communications, Marketing and Government Affairs.
“We were very pleased to have Shaunta visit the campus and to have her perspective and leadership on the State Board,” Lambert said. Hyde, who lives in the college district, admitted this wasn’t her visit. She said her young son enjoys science-related activities and has attended Pacific Science Center summer camp classes hosted on campus.
The group introduced Hyde to the college, its many outstanding programs including university transfer, professional/technical, basic skills and ongoing education and training. They also discussed the many challenges facing the college in meeting the needs of students. Then, the group braved a downpour to tour the Professional Automotive Training Center where they saw the General Service Technician I-BEST class, moved on to the CNC Machining program where they spoke with career navigator Michelene Felker, then saw a GED class as well as the instruction areas for CEO and biotechnology. After the tour, Hyde and Lambert spoke privately in the President’s office.
