Project ACCCESS Leadership

Project Coordinator

Christy Hediger
Lehigh Carbon Community College

Christy is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) in Schnecksville, PA. She earned her M.S. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Delaware. Christy was accepted to Cohort 8 of Project ACCCESS in 2011. Once her official involvement in the initiative ended, she helped facilitate sessions for Cohorts 10 through 13. She wrote an article for the AMATYC news about the benefits of Project ACCCESS as well as gave a presentation about Project ACCCESS at the AMATYC conference that was held in Anaheim in 2013. Christy is very interested in how technology and apps can be used in the classroom.

Barbra Steinhurst
Portland Community College

Since being a Cohort 2 ACCCESS Fellow, family life has led Barbra through a series of part-time, temporary teaching gigs at many colleges in many states. Her time in ACCCESS inspired her to continue sending herself to AMATYC conferences, even when she was between teaching gigs. While underemployed, she pursues her childhood dream of becoming a “Rennaisance [Wo]man” and perpetual student. She attempted to start a brand new community college, led a non-profit to increase access to postsecondary education, developed and led a program to support engineering students from underresourced high schools and underrepresented backgrounds, taken classes for and passed the CPA exam (though she isn’t actually licensed), worked as a school’s finance manager, earned her MBA, and she is now learning Spanish. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her spouse and daughter and is ecstatic to teach community college students regularly again.
