Good afternoon all, 

Hope you have been having a great week.  This past week has been one of meeting new colleagues on my end.  I’m sure you know by now, but we have Holly Woodmansee and William (Bill) Saraceno helping us as leadership in the Business and Admin area.  Both have extensive experience in the community and technical college system, have worked at Shoreline, and want to see us succeed!  Holly will be here two days a week in-person so if you get a chance to pop by the admin building, please do so.   

More good news- we started the process to “get the band back together” in Communication & Marketing and have been meeting to move the first position forward- the Executive Director.  We hope to start interviews in early January!  Wish us luck! 

I also had the monthly WACTC Presidents Academy and meetings last week (on Zoom), which as usual, were very informative.  I am beginning to know folks better which is nice and even getting teased “you are not new anymore so now you are voluntold, etc.”, which is fun as well.   

I had a GREAT meeting yesterday with Lynwood City Council member Julieta Altamirano-Crosby. I met Julieta at the Seattle Latino film festival here on campus.  She has a wonderful and powerful story to share about her experiences moving to the state from Mexico and her experiences here which have really solidified her advocacy for the Hispanic/Latinx community.  We had great discussions about reaching immigrant families and folks who currently are not yet here at Shoreline and how we can partner with our local faculty and staff and others in the community to change that.  I will keep you posted as things develop but it was very inspirational.   

Finally, as part of strengthening some ties in the community to support campus safety, I met with the City of Shoreline Chief of Police Kelly Park & Greg Cranson, our Director of Safety & Security. There were many topics discussed including community engagement, community support and safety, additional professional development, and collaborating with our local teams toward Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals.  This is going to be a great partnership with a lot of support for SCC!  

Have a great week all,
