PONTIAC — The associate director of the Challenger Learning Center at Heartland Community College has been named director of Heartland Community College Pontiac.
Stacey Shrewsbury will take over the new position on Monday.
The position was created as part of an operational realignment to meet the growing needs of the area, college officials said. Her salary will be $65,625.
Flight director Libby Torbeck will serve as interim associate director of the Challenger Learning Center while a national search is conducted to fill the position, which Shrewsbury has held since 2008.
Shrewsbury has 16 years of experience at Heartland, including operation planning, education and community outreach programs. She is a graduate of Pontiac Township High School and is president of the District 429 school board.
The current staff at Heartland's Pontiac site includes Associate Director Linda Tesdal, various instructors and a program assistant to be named later this summer.
Vice President of External Relations Kelli Tillery Hill, who oversees the regional centers in Pontiac and Lincoln, said, “Stacey will be an asset to Livingston County residents and businesses in this role, enhancing the progress made by our HCCP existing staff.”
Hill said, “Heartland Community College Pontiac has a vision to grow the college's visibility and partnerships across Livingston County and to increase enrollments through an array of programs.”
