Why did you decide to become a member of the HACC Foundation Board?
We are a diverse community and one key issue for every parent/student is student debt and employment. We need to create a long-term vision, which provides every necessary opportunity students require to get the jobs to reach their full potential, for example, provides STEM education, specialization in Cybersecurity, Healthcare courses which would help to get more jobs and pay off the student debt sooner. We need to create a structure that supports this vision, empowers staff, and provides leadership to achieve both short term and long term goals.
