Highline welcomes Michael V. Pham as the college’s new Vice President of Administrative Services.

A resident of Auburn, Pham comes to Highline from Seattle Central College where he also held the position of Vice President of Administrative Services. He has 27 years of experience in higher education, all within Washington’s community college system.

“Michael Pham has a reputation as a highly effective leader and a well-liked colleague,” said Dr. Jack Bermingham, Highline’s president, in his announcement of Pham’s appointment. “His many skills and wealth of experience in the community college system will be an asset to us here at Highline and contribute to our continued success.”

Pham earned his Master of Business Administration from City University and his bachelor’s degree from Central Washington University. His college education began at Seattle Central College, where he earned both an associate of arts degree and an associate of science degree.

Pham replaces Larry T. Yok, who retired in March 2015 after eight years with Highline as Vice President.
