Parker, J.D., Sheila Scott-Lubin, dean of academic affairs, Lake Worth campus; Edward Willey, dean of health sciences; and James Duffie, vice president, finance and administration.

Florida College System Chancellor Kathy Hebda recently visited Palm Beach State College to get a closeup look at some of its programs and facilities.

On June 9, President Ava L. Parker, J.D., and a group of staff and faculty greeted Hebda on the Lake Worth  campus and led her on tours of the Public Safety Training Center, as well as the Duncan Theatre, Library, Veterans Success Center and the Art Gallery in the Humanities Building. She also visited the Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting labs and other career programs.

“It was an honor to have Chancellor Hebda visit our campus,’’ Parker said. “The fact that she took time out of her busy schedule to be here shows that she cares about our students and the needs of our institution. It’s one thing to tell people about our work, but it’s more impactful when they can witness it with their own eyes.”

Hebda began her career at the Florida Department of Education in 1992 and was named chancellor of the Florida College System in 2019. One of her goals is to visit all of the 28 colleges to see the innovative programs and services and to meet students, staff and faculty. So far, she has visited 25.
