Two new trustees appointed to Peninsula College board

Posted

Two former Peninsula College Foundation board members have accepted appointments from Governor Jay Inslee to the Peninsula College Board of Trustees.

Claire Roney of Port Townsend and Joe Floyd of Sequim will begin serving Tuesday, Nov. 9.

They will replace outgoing board members Erik Rohrer and Julie McCulloch, whose terms recently expired. Roney and Floyd will join current Peninsula College Board members Mike Glenn (chair), Michael Maxwell, and Dwayne Johnson.

“Both Joe and Claire have been instrumental in the success of our Peninsula College Foundation Board, and we are thrilled to have them join us as trustees,” said Luke Robins, Peninsula College president.

“It’s really honor to be appointed as a trustee at Peninsula College,” Roney said. 

“It is a position of trust that I take very seriously. It is also a position of listening, and I look forward to learning more about the role. PC is a real gem for all of us on the North Olympic Peninsula,” she added.

Roney obtained her doctorate’s degree in clinical psychology with Health Psychology Emphasis from the California School of Professional Psychology, San Diego, in 1992. She earned her master’s degree in clinical psychology from the University of Houston in 1975.

She works as a psychologist in Port Townsend, specializing in geriatric and health psychology. Previously she was the founder and executive director of the Van Vleck House, a Teton County youth service in Jackson, Wyoming. Roney has also worked as an instructor at Peninsula College, a biofeedback therapist, and as a school psychologist.

She has served as an advisory board member for the Peninsula College Foundation singe 2016, in addition to numerous other volunteer positions.

Floyd is currently Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Montana State University, Billings where he served as a faculty member for 29 years. He retired in 2007.

He served on the board of directors of the Peninsula College Foundation from 2011 to 2021, and as president from 2013 to 2017. He is a certified mediator and serves as a volunteer mediator for the Peninsula Dispute Resolution Center, where he is also currently president of the board of directors.
