Why I'm Running
I'm running for the Metro Board of Governors because I believe that education is the best tool we have as a community to create equal access to opportunity for everyone. Metro Community College is a central part of the Omaha community and is a true example of what an affordable, practical, and exceptional education can do to help students achieve success and ensure that everyone has the tools to live The Good Life. While I serve on the Board of Governors, I promise to protect and promote the mission of Metro in its dedication to providing access, opportunity, and innovation to all students and lifelong learners in order to strengthen our community.
A quality, AFFORDABLE EDUCATION FOR ALL
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 and acquire new skills through learning.
an equal chance to empowerment and the good life
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-world possibilities for every student.
responsive to the needs of students and the community
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.
