Rita Roberson named Vice President for Institutional Advancement

Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College President, Dr. Robert E. Gunter, has named Rita Roberson as the college’s new Vice President for Institutional Advancement.

“Moving into the position of Vice President for Institutional Advancement will give me the opportunity to work closely with all of the communities in Southern’s service district,” Roberson said. “I look forward to working and partnering with schools, businesses and individuals in our effort to provide an education to all.”

Roberson began her educational career at Southern. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Marshall University, and then her Master of Arts in Counseling, with an emphasis in Community Agency, from Marshall University Graduate College.
She has been employed by Southern since 1985, and has most recently served as the Williamson Campus Director.

“Rita has brought huge levels of innovation to the college and most recently celebrated her latest success as the Southern Champion for our First Annual Southern Telethon hosted at Southern’s Williamson campus this past Sunday,” Dr. Gunter said. “I look forward to having her as part of my Executive Team and working with her to expand the Vision 2020 initiative by seeking additional donors to the College Foundation.”
