Dr. Seelpa Keshvala was appointed the 3rd college president of Lone Star College-CyFair in March 2016. She is passionate about education and, in particular, the community college mission. Dr. Keshvala earned her Ph.D. in urban education with a concentration in educational administration; an M.S. in curriculum and instruction; and a B.S. in elementary education all from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Her career began with teaching third- and fourth-grade in inner-city Milwaukee and later GED courses at Milwaukee Area Technical College. Her desire to continue making a difference progressed with various administrative roles in the community college setting. She served as Executive Director of the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program and Recruitment at Burlington County College located in Pemberton, New Jersey.

Spending time with family is a priority for Dr. Keshvala. Her husband, Mark, is an avid runner and they enjoy participating in 5ks, such as the Cy-Fair ISD’s annual Superintendent Fun Run. They are especially excited about raising their son, Eshaan, in such a diverse community as Cy-Fair.
