Cloud County Community College Names Amber Knoettgen as Its Ninth President

The board of trustees of Cloud County Community College in Concordia, Kansas, has selected Amber Knoettgen to become the educational institution’s ninth president. She has been serving as interim president since May.

Cloud County Community College enrolls about 1,800 students, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 58 percent of the student body.

“I am honored that the board has chosen me to lead the college as its next president,” Knoettgen said. “Over these past six months, I’ve been continually inspired by the Cloud team and their resiliency. I look forward to working with faculty, staff and students to continue moving Cloud in a positive direction. I think I bring a unique perspective as president of having been not only a student at Cloud, but also an athlete. I am a first generation student and the family atmosphere at Cloud gave me the support I needed to be successful. I want that for all of our students.”

Knoettgen came to Cloud County Community College in July 2016 as the director of advisement and retention. In November 2017, she was named vice president for administrative services. Earlier in her career, Knoettgen was the marketing coordinator for Baker University in Baldwin City, Kansas.
