Our President

Shoun-StanRanken President Stan Shoun brings a background of military service, a degree in aeronautical engineering and a long career in technical education to his position. Embarking on a second career in education after retiring from the US Navy in 1996, Shoun served most recently as the Vice President of Workforce Development and Continuing Education at Central Virginia Community College (CVCC) in Lynchburg, Va., and also served as that college’s Dean of Math, Science and Engineering.

In his time at CVCC, Shoun oversaw four satellite campuses. He led in the establishment of two additional satellite campuses as well as numerous new classes and associate degree programs.

Before CVCC, Shoun served as the director of the A. Linwood Holton Governor’s School in Southwest Virginia, providing oversight for the day-to-day operations of a virtual school for gifted and talented students. The school provided math, science and engineering classes to 38 high schools in 12 school districts in Southwest Virginia.

Shoun holds a Master of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School and a Bachelor of Science degree (cum laude) from East Tennessee State University, where he majored in political science, public administration and education.
