Tri-C Westshore names Learning for Life Series for Dr. Robert Searson upon his retirement

Dr. Robert Searson says a few words after the announcement that Tri-C Westshore named the lecture series he created after him.

Faculty and friends of longtime Dean of Learning & Engagement Dr. Robert Searson gathered at the Tri-C Westshore Campus to celebrate his retirement on Wednesday, Jan. 12.

Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough recorded a virtual proclamation presentation expressing sincere appreciation for his dedication and commitment to the community.

Dr. Searson has worked at the Westshore Campus since it opened in 2011 and initiated the Learning for Life Lecture Series, offering academically enriching programming for not only staff, faculty and students but also the broader community.

Interim Westshore Campus President Dr. Janice Taylor Heard announced that the program has been renamed in Dr. Searson's honor.

He began teaching in 1966 and has also worked for multiple companies, including his own and some Fortune 500 companies as well. The City of Westlake tapped him as facilitator for many faculty retreats over the years.
