JULIE YEARSLEY HUNGAR
Julie Yearsley Hungar earned her Phi Beta Kappa key at the University of Washington, where she graduated in 1954 with a bachelor’s degree in English literature magna cum laude. She completed a master’s degree in English there and a doctorate in educational leadership from Seattle University. Her career in the Seattle Community Colleges began with a position as an English teacher; her last post was vice chancellor for education for the three-college district.
Since retiring, Julie has done consulting in strategic planning for higher education and has written four books. Her most recent book, published in July 2009, is The Wisdom Trail: In the Footsteps of Remarkable Women, with Janet Lieberman. She also collaborated with John Morford and Delight Willing to write Life After 60? Yes! Choices for Managing the Third Part of Your Life. Previous books were Transforming Students’ Lives: How Exploring Transfer Works and Why and The Road to Equality, A Report on Transfer, both written with Dr. Lieberman.
Julie has “retired” again and focuses on community service as an elected commissioner for the Lake Forest Park Water District and an active member of the Seattle International District Rotary club, as well as on her family of four children and nine grandchildren.
