Chair, Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners

Washtenaw Community College is a leader in excellence, innovation and engagement in our state, continually striving to improve the lives of its outstanding students, faculty and staff. The college has managed to ensure quality while remaining affordable, retaining students and expanding cutting-edge workforce training and education for our residents.

Whether partnering with the state to attract, grow and develop talent in our county; pulling millions of dollars to support the Advanced Transportation Center; or successfully advocating for hundreds of thousands of dollars to support GED students, the college continues to build a better institution for our community.

I am proud of the engagement and direct partnerships between the college and our local municipalities, K-12 educational institutions, the business community and non-profit organizations like the Parkridge Community Center. WCC works with Destination Ann Arbor to bring world-class skills training programs to our area that strengthen our local economy, provides community enrichment programs for residents, and so much more.

Our county is stronger when we all work together. Our ability to improve the lives of residents is not done in silos, but through thoughtful and smart institutions and people coming together to build a better community to live, work, learn and raise a family.

On behalf of the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners, keep up the good work Washtenaw Community College!
