Cook County Higher Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Karen Blackburn as our next Executive Director effective June 12th. Karen will be replacing Paula Sundet Wolf, who previously announced that she will be retiring this summer after twenty years of outstanding service for the organization.

Karen has a B.A. Degree in Economics from Yale University and has lived and worked in Cook County for the past twenty two years. Her previous work experience includes ten years as Controller with Lutsen Mountains, many years operating her own bookkeeping business in support of various non-profit organizations in the area, a brief stint with the Cook County Economics Authority and most recently as Financial Coordinator for Cook County for the past three years.
Karen I. Halbersleben, President of the Board for Cook County Higher Education said: "We are extremely pleased to have hired Karen following an in depth and extensive review of a very strong pool of highly qualified candidates, which speaks to the reputation that Cook County Education has garnered in the region and the state."

The entire Board looks forward with great enthusiasm to welcoming and working with Karen and would like to thank Paula for her outstanding service in developing CCHE into an organization that has contributed greatly to the entire Cook County community. We wish Karen well in her new role and Paula a happy and prosperous retirement.
