Blenda J. Wilson to Serve as Acting President of Cedar Crest College

Last week Cedar Crest College in West Allentown, Pennsylvania, announced that Jill Leauber Sherman, who had served as president since July of this year, was no longer at the college. Officials at the college declined to state why Sherman had resigned.

The trustees appointed Blenda J. Wilson as acting president. In December 2006 Wilson retired as CEO of the Nellie Mae Foundation. Previously she had served as president of California State University Northridge and as president of the American Association of Higher Education.

Dr. Wilson is a graduate of Cedar Crest College. She holds a master’s degree from Seton Hall University and an educational doctorate from Boston College.
