Dennis Plubell joined the Walla Walla University Board of Trustees after his election as the vice president for education at the North Pacific Union Conference in 2014.
Plubell returns to the NPUC, where he served as the associate for secondary education from 1997–2007. Since then he has worked as the director of secondary education and accreditation for the North American Division. Plubell holds a Master of Arts in teaching from Pacific Union College in Angwin, Calif., and also an additional professional degree in educational administration and leadership from La Sierra University in Riverside, Calif. His 14 years of experience in secondary teaching and administration along with two decades of conference, union and division leadership equips him well for his new NPUC role.
His wife, Barbara, is the principal of Portland Adventist Elementary School in Portland, Ore.
