Pamela Cilek – President
Pamela S. Cilek was elected to the St. Charles Community College Board of Trustees in April 2014 and currently serves as Board President. Other offices include Board Vice President from 2015-2016 and Board Secretary from 2016-2018.
A 41-year resident of St. Charles County, Cilek is a retired educator who taught for 34 years, 26 of which were spent at SCC. Prior to her time at SCC, she taught high school for four years and served on the faculty at University of Missouri St. Louis, St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley, and Lindenwood University. Coming to SCC in the first year that the college offered classes to teach in the theater and communications department, Cilek experienced teaching in temporary locations throughout St. Charles County, moving to the current campus, and construction of each new building as she coordinated SCC’s Center Stage Theatre program.
Originally from Macomb, Illinois, Cilek obtained her bachelor’s degree in speech and theater education with a minor in English from Western Illinois University in Macomb and then earned her master of fine arts degree in theater at Lindenwood University. According to Cilek, education runs in her family. Her grandmother, mother-in-law, uncle, and sister were all educators, and her late husband, Clark Cilek, Ph.D., was principal of St. Charles West High School for 26 years.
"My philosophy of education, teaching, and life is pretty much the same: Success is usually about the ensemble or the group and not about just one person," Cilek said.
