Showing off at the auto show

WCC participated in the AutoMobili-D exhibit at the North American International Auto Show for the third consecutive year. The area is sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Planet M and features more than 200 brands, ranging from automakers and suppliers to tech startups and universities. WCC was the only two-year college in attendance.

It didn’t take long for Mackenzie Benning to go full circle. The 2017 WCC graduate was back on campus recently for the college’s annual Fall Career & Internship Fair. A one-time participant in the General Motors Summer Internship Program herself, Benning was back to help her employer find the next batch of GM interns.

WCC faculty member William Nelson following his father’s footsteps

When Washtenaw Community College faculty member William Nelson won the Technologist of the Year Award from the Michigan Society of Radiologic Technologists last month, a familiar face was there to pin the award on his lapel – his father, Robert Nelson, who won the same award in 1986. It wasn’t the first time William Nelson had followed in his father’s footsteps.
