Kelli White-Mellish has been chosen as the new educational planner and outreach liaison for Skagit Valley College South Whidbey Center.

The Langley resident replaces Dr. Rick Stewart, who retired after 11 years in the position.

White-Mellish has worked for the Whidbey Island campus and online for 13 years teaching English.

White-Mellish’s role is to help students on South Whidbey with their educational and career plans.

“For students at the South Whidbey Center, Skagit Valley College is part of their journey, not their destination,” White-Mellish said in a news release. “My goal is to help them get the classes they need at SVC so they can take the next step on their educational path.”

The campus offers small classes for the community. The center also offers a free program called Women in Transition, which teaches resume development, job search techniques and life skills.
