RICHLAND, Wash. –
Veteran education professional Evangelina Galvan Shreeve has been named the new director of STEM Education and Outreach at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, effective Jan. 1. She will replace Jeff Estes, who retires Dec. 31 after serving 28 years at PNNL.
In her new role, Shreeve will lead the development and implementation of PNNL science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives and programs, which are designed to help prepare the current and next generation of researchers, educators and technology innovators.
"I look forward to building on PNNL's already successful STEM education programs in partnership with local, regional and national organizations," Shreeve said. "Together with groups such as the Mid-Columbia STEM Education Collaboratory, we will help expand, strengthen and diversify the U. S. STEM workforce."
Shreeve joined PNNL in 2009 and currently manages the Laboratory's staff training program. She has also managed PNNL's internship program for high school through graduate students and PNNL's diversity and inclusion office. She currently serves on the board of the ACT Foundation, which helps low-income young adults achieve education and workplace success.
She previously led community partnerships for the University of Washington and diversity and administration at Columbia Basin College. She holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in public administration, both from the University of Washington. She grew up in Prosser, Washington.
