Beth is a native of Klamath Falls, who graduated from Mazama High School before making her way to Oregon State University, where she majored in human resources and industrial relations, with a minor in psychology and sociology. A year after graduating Beth moved to Anchorage, Alaska, and then Juneau, where she worked as a lobbyist and then for an insurance agent. She completed a master's in secondary education through Grand Canyon University after returning to Klamath Falls, and worked for a private school for 13 years, the last 6 years in high school social science, journalism, and yearbook. In 2016 she became a student success representative at Klamath Community College, where she worked in advising students, helping them stay on track for graduation, as well as working with local high schools to encourage students to be purposeful in their dual credit and college credit choices.
Beth enjoys helping students find their potential. Her experience working with high school students to help them see the path to their future goals, and what education is necessary, makes for a smooth transition into the director of the Upward Bound (UB) program. She looks forward to working with the UB participants to share with them new cultural and educational experiences, as well as helping them visit numerous colleges.
Her hobbies include running, reading, and spending time with her grown and flown children.
“Education is lifelong, making sure you enjoy your path to your future lies with you.” – Beth Stiller
