Her own college education started at Hill College, and she also studied at McLennan Community College, Sam Houston State University and University of Mary Hardin-Baylor prior to receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Applied Sciences and then a Master’s degree in Education from Tarleton State University. Her doctoral degree in education is from Texas A&M University-Commerce.
As president of the college, Dr. Boehm has secured grant funds to increase services to students, developed a testing center, created a tutorial program for students and partnered with Hillsboro Independent School District to develop a Teen Forum.
