- Chris Ross
SDI’s commander-in-chief recently got some well-deserved accolades!
On April 22, 2019, the Distance Education Accrediting Commission, DEAC, elected Sonoran Desert Institue’s president Traci Lee to its Board of Directors on a three-year term. The election was held in conjunction with DEAC’s 93rd Annual Conference and Lee will serve on the board through March 31st, 2022.
The official announcement was made on the DEAC’s website via a press release.
“I am deeply honored to serve as a board member and look forward to the opportunity to utilize my background in the education sector to contribute to the Commission,” said Ms. Lee. “I also have tremendous respect for the board members, and I look forward to working with them.”
SDI’s Vice President of Operations Chris Caraway, who was honored with the DEAC’s Rising Star Award in April, was able to perfectly put everyone at SDI’s feelings into words when asked about Traci’s recent achievement.
“This is a great honor and reflects Traci’s hard work to promote distance education and SDI within our industry,” said Caraway. “We are proud of Traci for being elected to this prestigious position. Much important, yet thankless work lies ahead for Traci in her role as a board member, but no one is more qualified for the job.”
We’re all excited for Traci in this new endeavor and we know she will bring the same energy and expertise to this position that she brings to SDI.
