He brings tremendous enthusiasm to everything he does. It also speaks well of the college and the city that he wants to be here," says Kelly.

Shufflebotham looks forward to joining the college and community.

"Medicine Hat College has a strong reputation for its focus on student success and serving the needs of the community. The opportunity to serve as president of this highly valued organization is a tremendous privilege."

In addition to working at NAIT, Shufflebotham served as director of operations with the office of the president at MacEwan University. He also held various management positions with the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Advanced Education, including senior manager for the Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer (ACAT) and manager of business consultation.
