Terri Winfree named president of Prairie State College


The Prairie State College (PSC) Board of Trustees has selected Terri Winfree, Ph.D., to serve as the college's 14th president. The announcement was made following the board's April board meeting on Tuesday, April 30. She will start her new position as PSC president on May 19, 2013.

For Winfree, it is yet another "first" she has achieved since starting at PSC as a part-time student. She is the first woman president of the college, the first PSC graduate to be named president, and the first person in her family to attend college.

Winfree started taking computer classes at PSC as a part time student to assist with the business side of her family's restaurant, and fell in love with learning.

"It was my experience in a learning community class that made me realize the importance of a well-rounded education. Professors John Flannigan and Dr. Maurine Stein challenged me when I was a PSC student and made me think differently. I wanted to learn more," she said.

After graduating from PSC with an Associate Degree in General Studies in 1996, she received her Bachelor of Arts in 1998 and Master of Arts in 2000 from Governors State University. In 2012, she obtained her Ph.D. in Education and Human Resources from Colorado State University.
