Statement from President Warren Brown on Charleena Lyles

June 30, 2017

Dear North,

It is with a heavy heart that I must share sad news with you. We learned today from our Parent Education faculty that Charleena Lyles, who was fatally shot by a Seattle police officer on June 18, was enrolled in the Parent Education program.

Charleena was enrolled in the program from Fall Quarter 2015 through Spring Quarter 2017, with plans of attending in the fall. Faculty who knew and worked with Charleena describe her as being actively involved in the program.

Student Spotlight: Sara Michelassi

Did you know 46% of North Seattle College students reported facing some form of food insecurity? That number, discovered through a student survey, pushed Student Body President Sara Michelassi to coordinate an initiative to host a food pantry on North’s campus. And that’s just one piece of her day job.

Employee Spotlight: Vice President of Student Development

Joe Barrientos

When Joe Barrientos competed in the Honolulu marathon he hit a wall at mile 22 and had cramps so bad they forced him to recover at an emergency checkpoint. Barrientos, North’s Vice President of Student Development Services, had a choice then: he could stop the race or finish. He decided to finish, and the lesson he learned that day helped prepare him for his position at North.
