Colorado Northwestern Community College announced a new hire and a promotion this week.
Dawn Rosier joined CNCC's staff as director of business and finance/controller.
Rosier, a Meeker resident, earned a bachelor's degree in accounting in 2006 from Strayer University and currently is working toward a master's degree in accounting/controllership.
"I'm very excited to be a part of the college as well as Rangely, and to be of service to the Rio Blanco County community," Rosier said.
Rosier has more than 25 years of accounting experience, primarily in the governmental and non-profit arenas.
This experience includes her position as the treasurer/human resources director and budget officer for the Town of Silt, where she managed and directed the town's finances.
She also held positions such as director of budget and finance and interim city administrator in the City of Idaho Springs and treasurer and budget officer in the Town of Georgetown.
Bob Horntvedt, former dean of instruction on the CNCC Rangely campus, became the vice-president of academic affairs on Feb. 1.
Horntvedt has worked at CNCC for 22 years and has held several different titles throughout that time.
He began at the college as a geology instructor in the petroleum program. He has continued to teach a course in geology or speech every semester.
He then served as the dean of academic services and was moved into the dean of instruction position in January 2005. He also served as the chief academic officer for the college during that time.
Horntvedt is well known for guiding rafting excursions down the Yampa River as well as trips through the Lodore Canyon.
CNCC President John Boyd said Horntvedt's promotion is evidence of many years of devotion to the college and dedication to students.
"This change in title better represents Bob's position and duties at the college," Boyd said.
