Meet New Ely Center Director Shemayne Pitts!

Image of Shemayne Pitts.I am excited to begin a new role as the Ely Center Director for Great Basin College.  I have long been committed to higher education in eastern Nevada and value my time working with the Ely Center faculty, staff, and students.  My employment with GBC began as a part time faculty member.  I eagerly joined the full-time office staff over five years ago and have appreciated the tremendous opportunity to learn and interact with the GBC community.  I look forward to continued association with colleagues whom I respect and appreciate.

My family and I are pleased to call Ely our home where we have long been a part of this community.  The move from Utah to eastern Nevada allowed us to find new opportunities and friendships that will last a lifetime.  Watching the dedicated staff and faculty of the Ely Center expand its offerings to a wider group of local students has been rewarding.  I appreciate the educational opportunities that Great Basin College provides and look forward to continuing a long tradition of excellence.
