The governors of Pembrokeshire College were unanimous in their recent decision to appoint Sharron Lusher as Principal following a two-day selection process.
Chair of the Corporation Derek Lloyd commented: “We are delighted with Sharron’s appointment; as Interim Principal she has delivered significant developments to the College, enhancing the student experience and building links with local businesses and the community. Her drive and commitment will ensure that the College continues to be recognised as a leader in the field of further education within Wales.”
Sharron commented: “It is a privilege to be appointed as Principal of Pembrokeshire College. Born and brought up in Pembrokeshire, I have a great love for this county, and a firm belief in the value that education and training gives to the individual, to the economy and to society.
“With the Welsh Government agenda focused on transformation, I am committed to developing relationships and partnerships in order that students receive the best education for their particular career choice. Through strong collaboration we can ensure that the skills needs of employers are met, that communities benefit from collective effort, and that we achieve best value for the ‘Welsh pound’. Underpinning this must inevitably be a drive to secure the highest possible quality to give students the best possible opportunities.
“As the new term commences in September, I look forward to welcoming many new faces, and welcoming back those who are returning to us again."
