Santa Monica College Alumni reach across the country and around the globe.
YOUR PRESENCE MATTERS.
You may know by now that Dr. Kathryn E. Jeffery – Santa Monica College’s new president – brings over three decades of higher education experience to her role as CEO of California’s leading transfer college. She also enjoys a complicated version of Scrabble, using only words that relate to a theme.
Additionally, Dr. Jeffery is a classically trained contralto and pianist, but loves jazz standards. A few days ago, she heard “Fly Me to the Moon”, and recalled singing that song while her mother accompanied her on the piano (she was named Kathryn after her mother’s music teacher).
“That’s how I feel about coming to Santa Monica College,” says Dr. Jeffery. “Maybe not exactly flying to the moon, but I am in a new and exciting world!” She adds that she already feels a blossoming love affair with SMC, and is “…really, really antsy to dig in, and embrace it.”
Dr. Jeffery comes to SMC after serving nearly eight years as president of Sacramento City College (SCC), but her career in higher education has been truly diverse. Before becoming an administrator, she taught for over twenty years including in SCC’s counseling and humanities/fine arts divisions; she also taught graduate courses in educational leadership. . .blog comments powered by Disqus
