The Delta College Board of Trustees has announced the appointment of Arshen Baldwin, an educator from Saginaw, as its newest trustee.
Baldwin will fill the vacant term of Karen Lawrence-Webster, who resigned in December after serving as trustee for 19 years. The Board’s Vacancy Committee recommended and confirmed Baldwin on February 9 at its regularly scheduled meeting.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to assist students in advancing their education,” Baldwin said. “I believe in the mission of community colleges to provide individuals with a solid educational foundation. Delta College does that and more by addressing the constant changing trends in our community through workforce development and technical training opportunities.”
Baldwin is an instructor at the Success Academy in Saginaw. She also teaches at Saginaw Valley State University as an adjunct instructor and founded Education Empowerment Solutions, a company that provides supplemental instruction, academic assessment and support for students.
Baldwin said her vision for Delta is to form greater collaborative partnerships with local school districts in drawing students to dual enrollment and post-secondary education.
“I am invested in the Saginaw County community and always seek opportunities to make it better, not only for my children, but the children I serve daily,” she said.
Baldwin earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology from Central Michigan University, a master’s degree in special education from the University of Phoenix and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Saginaw Valley State University. She holds several certifications in the areas of learning disabilities and restorative practices.
The appointment term expires in 2022. Baldwin said she will run for election to the Delta College Board of Trustees in the next election.
