RALEIGH, N.C. (August 25, 2009) - Former State Representative Linda Coleman was sworn in on Tuesday, August 18, as the newest member of the Wake Tech Board of Trustees. Coleman currently serves as Director of the Office of State Personnel and is a member of the Wake Tech Foundation Board of Directors. She was appointed to the Wake Tech Board by the Wake County Board of Education.

While serving in North Carolina's General Assembly, Coleman chaired the state personnel committee. Prior to her election to the House of Representatives, Coleman worked in HR management at the NC Department of Agriculture and at the NC Department of Administration. She has worked as personnel director for the North Carolina Community College System and as personnel analyst for the Office of State Personnel.

Coleman is a graduate of North Carolina A&T State University and the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public and International Affairs.

"Linda brings very valuable knowledge and experience to the Wake Tech Board," says Dr. Stephen Scott, President of Wake Tech. "Her extensive background in public service will be of vital importance - to our trustees as well as to administrators and faculty throughout the College - as we continue to grow and address the challenges of serving this community."

The Board of Trustees also welcomes the president of Wake Tech's Student Government Association, Alyssa Parry, who was sworn in as an ex-officio student representative on the board. Current Trustee Wanda Denning was sworn in for another four-year term.

Wake Tech is served by 12 trustees, all of whom are appointed: four by the Governor, four by the Wake County Board of Commissioners, and four by the Wake County Board of Education. Among their responsibilities, trustees establish policy, approve the annual budget, and serve as advocates for the College and its programs and services. Trustees are also responsible for choosing a new president for the College when that need arises.
