Clint Reading

Raised in Blackfoot, Clint is a 1999 graduate of Blackfoot High School.  He attended Chadron State College in Nebraska on a track scholarship. While there, he completed a Bachelor of Arts in secondary education and a Master of Arts in science education. Upon finishing his education, Clint began a career in postsecondary education. He received a Teaching in Excellence Award from his students and the Wyoming Board of Trustees nominated him for teacher of the year.


Looking to take the step from the classroom to administration, Clint accepted a position as the Associate Dean for Missoula College. Acting as the chief academic officer, Clint learned of the importance of technical education to a community and the life-changing impact that it has for individuals. He became heavily involved in dual enrollment, apprenticeship and pathway opportunities, and received honors for his work involving veterans and credit for prior learning initiatives.


Growing up in such a great area, and knowing all the advantages Southeastern Idaho has to offer, his long-time goal was to return to the area. When Eastern Idaho Technical College became College of Eastern Idaho, Clint knew that this was where he wanted to continue his career. CEI hired Clint in 2018 to serve as Dean of Career and Technical Education. Clint is now serving as the co-chair of the Academic Standards Committee, leading the prior learning assessment process, and working to increase apprenticeship opportunities at CEI. He is constantly looking for ways to improve the student experience.


Clint’s future ambition is to own a Tesla just like his boss. His hobbies include running, tacos, the mountains, and being outdoors with his wife Jill and their four kids.
