By Alabama Community College System


MONTGOMERY, Alabama – Alabama Community College System Chancellor, Dr. Mark Heinrich, announced today that he has appointed Dr. Andrea Mayfield as president of Shelton State Community College in Tuscaloosa. The Alabama State Board of Education approved Mayfield’s appointment effective July 1.


In recommending Dr. Mayfield for the Shelton State position, Chancellor Heinrich spoke to the experience, leadership and commitment that Dr. Mayfield brings to her new post.


A native of Livingston, Dr. Mayfield has been an educator and a member of the East Mississippi Community College team for 18 years. During that time, she served as an instructor of biological sciences, eLearning coordinator, eLearning dean, dean of instruction, vice president for instruction, vice president for institutional research and effectiveness, and most recently, as vice president of the Scooba campus.


Dr. Mayfield holds a doctorate in educational leadership with a special emphasis in the administration of higher education from Mississippi State University, and earned B.S. and M.A.T. degrees in Biological Sciences from Livingston University and The University of West Alabama.


“Dr. Mayfield is a proven collaborator and visionary leader,” Dr. Heinrich said. “Her work with Mississippi workforce partners and local and state organizations follows her belief that the community college holds the key to local and state economic growth and development.”


Governed by the State Board of Education, the Alabama Community College System (ACCS) consists of 25 comprehensive community colleges and technical colleges, Marion Military Institute and the Alabama Technology Network. ACCS is committed to providing a unified system of institutions delivering excellence in academic education, adult education, and workforce development.
