(SALEM) - Cheryl Roberts, president of Chemeketa Community College, has officially withdrawn her candidacy for president of Bellevue College.

Roberts, who in March announced to Chemeketa staff she was among those being considered in the final phase of the Bellevue College presidential search, cites Bellevue's extensive search process interfering with her current commitments at Chemeketa as the reason for her withdrawal.

In a letter to Chemeketa staff, Roberts says, "It became clear that the Bellevue College search would not allow me to focus my full attention on our students and our community nor allow me to show you the respect and love I have for you and for the work we have achieved together."

Despite her withdrawal, Roberts expressed gratitude for staff, student and community support of her candidacy.

"Your encouragement means more than you will ever know,” said Roberts, “It remains a privilege to serve as Chemeketa's president, and I look forward to continuing our exceptional work helping students stay focused and attain their educational goals."
