Classified Senate Board
Hi, I am Valerie Exum. I am the current president of the Classified Senate at Napa Valley College. In my 27+ years at NVC, I have had many roles—student, student worker, Instructional Assistant II & III, Admissions & Records Clerk, Assistant Registrar, and an Adjunct Faculty member. I have been on several committees and been a Stewart in the Union. While working at NVC, I have earned three Associate degrees, a Bachelor's degree in Business Management, a California Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential (concentration in Business), and a Master's in Education (concentration in Curriculum and Instruction).
I am excited about this new venture and look forward to helping bring Napa Valley College forward.

I am Jan Schardt, I began my career here at NVC as a student worker, then an hourly substitute, to being hired as a classified staff member in 1981. In my 31 plus years here at NVC I have seen change, cycles of poor budgets, improved budgets and 5 college presidents (not counting the interims). In addition I have been and am very active in our Unions chapter and at the Local and International Union level. I have my Bachelors of Science degree from Pacific Union College in Business Administration and a Masters in Organizational Management from University of Phoenix. I am honored to serve as your Vice President.

Jolie SanClair Brown
My name is Jolie SanClair Brown and I have been employed at NVC for over thirteen years. I am continuously inspired by the hard work of my fellow colleagues & the experience of supporting the success of our students.
I firmly believe that nothing ever happens to us solely as the result of coincidence or destiny, not even our connection with each other. I am committed to working together in unison with the attitude of “many in body but of one mind.”
