We are thrilled to welcome Sharyl McGrew as our new Grants Officer and Wendy Quezada as our new Executive Assistant.

Sharyl McGrew is excited to bring her extensive experience in nonprofit fundraising and higher education administration to the Prison University Project development team. Prior to joining the Prison University Project, she worked as a grant writing and project management consultant for a range of education and social service clients, raising over $40 million. She also worked for 7 years at the WASC Senior College and University Commission, overseeing several key accreditation processes and making policy recommendations related to innovation and change in higher education. From 2009-16, she taught English and Communications classes for the Prison University Project and also volunteered with San Quentin’s Alliance for Change. Sharyl earned a BA in English Literature from UC Santa Cruz and an MS in Community and Regional Development from UC Davis.

Prior to joining Prison University Project, Wendy Quezada worked in higher education and non-profits in the Bay Area. As the first in her family to obtain a college degree, she is passionate about access to quality education for all.  In her spare time, she loves taking her two dogs on long hikes, and spending time with her husband and two young daughters. Wendy holds a B.A. in Anthropology and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

Please note that the Prison University Project became Mount Tamalpais College in September 2020.
