On April 23, 2014 Leslie McClellon was chosen as the new president of Rochester Community and Technical College by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees.  She officially took over the reins July 1, 2014.

The road taken from her education in Oklahoma to Minnesota was long and winding and filled with challenges.  At age 17, Leslie headed to Langston University where she was the third generation in her family to attend the historically black college near Oklahoma City.  There she earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and later, a master’s degree in urban education.  Job experience as a case manager and recruiter for Big Brothers and Sisters of Oklahoma and as a counselor in drug and alcohol programs taught her valuable life and career skills. But Leslie felt her calling was in education and returned to Langston where her career in education had begun.

Leslie has 20 years of experience in higher education.  Before accepting the position at RCTC, she served as vice president of student affairs at the Community College of Denver.  Previously Leslie served at Arizona Western College as dean of student retention and support; assistant to the vice president for student services, and as executive assistant to the president of student affairs at Langston University; and at Wright Business School in Oklahoma as dean of students.

Please join us for an enjoyable evening and to learn about the trials and triumphs of Leslie’s first year as President of RCTC.
