James Kynor comes to Trinidad State from Community College of Denver where he is Dean of Business, Industry, Technology and Public Service. “I felt we needed an executive leader at the Valley Campus who could provide consistent, day-to-day leadership for the campus and community,” said President Dr. Rhonda Epper. “I was also looking for a leader who can take the Valley Campus to the next level while supporting the economic growth that’s happening in the Valley. TSJC is looking to expand our CTE (Career and Technical Education) programming, and Jim Kynor has a track record of success that he will bring to the San Luis Valley.” CTE includes manufacturing, agriculture and health sciences.
Kynor has been at Community College of Denver since 2016. Before that he served for four years as the Associate Dean of CTE and Workforce related programs at Pikes Peak Community College. He also has private sector experience as a director of Quality, Planning, and International Business for a manufacturing, construction and engineering firm. He served in the military and graduated from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and has a Master’s in Business Administration from Boston College.
He’ll relocate to Alamosa with his wife Maribeth, and son Lucas.
