(Shoreline, Wash.) – The Shoreline Community College (Shoreline) Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Ringer selected by Washington Governor Jay Inslee in June 2022. 

Ringer’s appointment is effective as of October 1, and her term will run through September 30, 2026. The Board is composed of five members appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Washington State Senate. Board members serve as the college’s policy-making body and are responsible for selecting, supervising, and evaluating the president. 

Ringer will replace Trustee Catherine Post D’Ambrosio who served two terms from November 2013 to September 2022. She joins four other trustees, including Rebecca Chan, Tom Lux, Eben Pobee and Kim Wells. 

Ringer recently retired after a 35-year career as a prominent trial lawyer. Prior to her Pacific Northwest law career, she practiced law on the East Coast for several years. She graduated with honors from the University of Kansas and later attended Cornell University School of Law. She enjoys time volunteering and playing tennis with her husband. 

“I am honored to have been appointed to the Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees,” Ringer said. “I have long recognized Shoreline’s enormous value to our community. In addition to providing excellent educational opportunities, the college acts as a place where the community can gather for music, theater, science exhibits, cinema and more.”
