As both a teacher and a professor, I understand the value of a quality education in providing opportunity for those who might otherwise find it hard to achieve their goals. As a Governor on the Metro Board, I promise to protect and promote the mission of MCC to provide an affordable, student-centered educational experience to anyone seeking to better themselves through learning.
I believe that our community is stronger when everyone has an equal chance at opportunity, regardless of age, race, gender, ability, or any other barrier. Serving on the Metro Board, I will work to ensure that we grow programs and curriculum that increases student achievement, is responsive to the needs of Nebraska's workforce, and creates real possibilities for every student.
If I've learned anything in my professional experience, it is that every student is different. The tools needed to achieve success are as diverse as the community of learners we serve. As a Governor on the Metro Board, I will improve existing programs and technology that increase access to learning from health sciences to construction technology. I will advocate for innovative classrooms and facilities that reach more students where they are, and provide them with the skills that help them get where they want to be.
