Student Access & Support Welcomes New Leader
Glynn Woodburn has been named the new department head for the Selkirk College Student Access & Support (SAS).
A Selkirk College employee for the last 12 years, Woodburn has been a registered nurse for 35 years and brings a Master of Arts in Counseling. She comes into her new position after 12 years as a Disability Support Coordinator.
Woodburn's work at Selkirk College was recognized last year by the Disability Resource Network of BC who presented her with the 2014 Celebrate Excellence Award for Services.
“Glynn is very capable and a role model for how we live our College values in our day-to-day work,” says Cathy Mercer, Director of Student & Enrolment Services/Registrar. “Glynn will bring this approach to her new position and her leadership on the Focus on the Learner initiatives.”
In her previous role, Woodburn has been recognized for her outstanding dedication to students and passion for education. Last year, the Disability Resource Network of BC presented Woodburn with the 2014 Celebrate Excellence Award for Services. The provincial organization that represents individuals who provide programs and services for individuals who have disabilities in the BC post-secondary education system, singled Woodburn out for the work she does at the three Selkirk College Nelson campuses.
Woodburn was also a recipient of a NISOD (National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development) award in 2012.
Woodburn will transition into her new position over the next few months.
