Northwest Community College’s new president begins work March 1.

Dr. Denise Henning comes to the college from a job as the president of the University College of the North based in The Pas in northern Manitoba.

She was named president of that institution in 2006.

Born in Oklahoma, Henning received her Doctorate in Educational Management and Development from New Mexico State University.

She also holds Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Urban Studies and Anthropology from the University of Nebraska.

Prior to her presidency in Manitoba, Henning worked at the University of Regina and at the First Nations University of Canada.

Henning replaces Stephanie Forsyth who, ironically, moved to Manitoba last fall to take over as president of the Red River College in Winnipeg.

Northwest Community College chairman Rhoda Witherly welcomed Henning’s appointment, saying the University College “She fit the criteria” of what the college wanted.
