Chancellor Hellyer named one of ‘8 Female Community College Leaders to Watch in 2018’

EAB (the Education Advisory Board) had named San Jacinto College Chancellor Dr. Brenda Hellyer one of eight female community college leaders to watch in 2018. As part of its series on women in college leadership, EAB staff writer Emily Arnim decided to profile the women leading the top 25 community colleges in United States (as ranked by Niche‘s 2018 Best Community Colleges list) as well as the women leading Aspen Institute‘s ten 2019 finalists for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. Among these 35 high-performing community colleges, eight are led by women (or about 23%). Congratulations to Dr. Hellyer and the other women named on this list.
