The Voice: Triple WSU alumna named Blue Water Woman Educator of the Year
Blue Water Woman, a quarterly magazine publication for women living, working and playing in the Blue Water Area, recently named the winners for its Blue Water Woman of the Year awards. Five local women were named to the list of winners this year, including St. Clair County Community College President Dr. Deborah Snyder, a three-time Wayne State graduate including a 1988 MBA from the Mike Ilitch School of Business.
In order to win an award, women who live or work in St. Clair County had to demonstrate excellence, creativity and innovation in their professional, volunteer, mentoring, passion or educational endeavors. A distinguished panel of impartial female judges from the Upper Peninsula served as the selection committee.
Snyder was named the Blue Water Woman Educator of the Year. She is a native of the Blue Water Area and a former student of both Port Huron Northern High School and SC4, a press release from SC4 states. In 2016, Snyder came to work at SC4 after a more than 30-year career in higher education. She has a Ph.D. in organizational communication, a master’s degree in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in psychology, all from Wayne State University.
