Salina Area Technical College announced this morning that Brenda Gutierrez has been named executive director of the college’s foundation, succeeding Larry Pankratz, who retired at the end of 2021.

“We are very happy Brenda has joined the Salina Tech family in this important role,” said Salina Tech President Greg Nichols. “Tuition, plus state and federal funding is sufficient to sustain the college’s operations, but future growth of the college will depend on private and corporate support.”
