After consideration of three candidates the SKCTC Board of Directors unanimously recommended Dr. Moore for the position. Board Chair Reecie Stagnolia commented, “Dr. Moore is the best candidate for the job. She has a lot to offer this area and the Southeast Board, Foundation, faculty and students all gave her high marks.”

Dr. Moore has served as the vice president for student development at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon since 2008, and took on an additional role as vice president of administrative services in 2011. Prior to that she was the dean of students and an adjunct instructor at Hill Community College District in Texas, and the supplemental education services director at Texas State Technical College. In addition to her experience in higher education Dr. Moore has also held positions with the Texas Comptroller’s Office, the Texas Department of Corrections and she is a former co-owner and manager of a private dental clinic.

“Dr. Moore brings a range of skills and experience to the position,” said Dr. McCall. “We are pleased to welcome her to SKCTC and KCTCS.”

Dr. Moore earned a doctorate of philosophy in educational administration from the Community College Leadership Program at The University of Texas at Austin. She holds a master’s degree in business administration from Baker College with a concentration in human resource management and a bachelor of science degree in business management from the University of Phoenix. Dr. Moore is a member of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) and has experience in community service and fundraising for a variety of organizations.

"I am incredibly honored and proud to have been chosen to serve as the next president of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College,” said Dr. Moore. “I appreciate the confidence the college family, Dr. McCall, the Southeast Board of Directors, and the Southeast community have placed in me as I assume the leadership role of this fine institution. SKCTC is indeed one of the ‘Nation’s Top 10 Community Colleges’. It will be a privilege to work with many local professionals to ensure a seamless transition of leadership."

Dr. Moore will begin serving as president effective July 8 following the retirement of long-time SKCTC president Dr. Bruce Ayers.
