CSI hires new Blaine County leader

Hallie Kelly Star named new director


    The College of Southern Idaho has announced that Hallie Kelly Star has been hired as the new director of the organization’s Blaine County campus.
    Star was preceded by Dr. Jenny Emery-Davidson, who has taken a full-time faculty position at the College of Southern Idaho. Star began as the director of CSI on Dec. 16.
    A longtime resident of the Wood River Valley, Star has served as the director of development for the Lee Pesky Learning Center. Prior to her work there, she served as the development officer at the Wood River YMCA. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Ore., a master’s degree in media studies from the New School in New York, and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in education from the University of Idaho.
    “I am thrilled to be at CSI and to have the opportunity to expand the academic courses and community education classes offered at the Hailey campus,” she said. “CSI’s presence in the Wood River Valley is an essential educational component of our community. Through CSI, local students can earn an associate’s degree without having to leave the valley.”
