Gov. Jay Inslee recently appointed Colleen Ponto and Meghan Quint to open seats on Cascadia College’s Board of Trustees.
Current board chair Julie Miller is stepping down after 10 years. The other open seat belonged to Nancee Hofmeister, who moved to Michigan.
Ponto, a Kenmore resident, is a leadership and organizational effectiveness consultant at Providence St. Joseph Health. She has helped provide environmental education efforts at St. Edwards State Park, and has worked at Seattle University and Pinchot University.
Quint, a Bothell resident, recently accepted an adjunct teaching role at Cascadia College’s co-located partner, University of Washington, Bothell. She is involved on the advisory board for Snohomish County Tomorrow and serves as the director of strategy management for Premera Blue Cross.
“Both of these candidates bring valuable expertise, show a great enthusiasm for Cascadia, and are genuinely aligned with our mission,” said Cascadia College President Eric Murray.
Ponto and Quint will join Roy Captain, Mike Kelly, and Janet McDaniel on Cascadia’s five-member board.
