Wake Tech Welcomes New Trustee
RALEIGH, N.C. (June 19, 2012) – The Wake Technical Community College Board of Trustees is pleased to welcome a new member to its ranks. Valentina Scribner, appointed by the Wake County Board of Commissioners, was sworn in on Tuesday, June 19, as the newest trustee on Wake Tech’s 12-member board.
Scribner is the Director of Technology for Wake Christian Academy, Inc., where she designs and maintains technology infrastructure for students, faculty, and staff. Before joining Wake Christian she served as a systems analyst/programmer for IBM, and she has more than 15 years of technology infrastructure experience. Scribner holds an associate in applied science degree from Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, New York, as well as a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Technical Education at NC State. Scribner and her husband live in Apex.
“Ms. Scribner brings tremendously valuable skill and experience to our board,” says Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott. “Her knowledge of instructional technologies coupled with her informed perspective on education will provide important guidance in our planning and policy-making.”
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. An ex-officio student representative (usually the president of Wake Tech’s Student Government Association) also serves on the board. Trustees establish policy for Wake Tech, approve the annual budget, and serve as advocates for the college and its services. Trustees also select the college president when that need arises.
