WATERTOWN, S.D.--Scott Carbonneau (pictured) has been named Dean of Student Services at Lake Area Technical College (LATC).

He’ll assume those duties on April 1st, pending approval from the Watertown School Board.

Carbonneau has been the Vice President of Integrated Marketing at First PREMIER Bank since 2018.

He replaces LuAnn Strait, who retired after a 36 year career at LATC.

“For as long as I can remember, Lake Area Tech has held a special place in my heart,” Carbonneau said. “My father joined Lake Area Vocational Technical Institute in 1970 and I am incredibly honored to follow in his footsteps more than 50 years later. I’m also excited to give back to the community where I grew up and reconnect with friends and colleagues.”

“Scott is driven to see students realize their aspirations and Lake Area Technical College thrive,” said President Tiffany Sanderson. “His experience and creativity will help LATC advance our mission as the nation’s premier technical college.”
