The West Shore Community College Board of Trustees held their monthly meeting last night to discuss upcoming events, but this meeting also served as a welcome to the college’s new president Dr. Kenneth Urban. After discussing budget changes, job training programs, and the upcoming College For Kids summer camp, the meeting transitioned to board comments where each member welcomed Dr. Urban with the upmost appreciation.
WMOM spoke with the college’s Vice President Scott Ward about his hopes for the college’s future under their new colleague:
Ward said, “I’m totally confident that we’ll continue the community outreach that we really worked to expand this year, and expansion of our workforce development with business and industry in our district… I’m totally confident under Dr. Urban’s leadership.”
Dr. Urban said he was “utterly amazed” at the welcome he’d received from the community and expressed his excitement for the opportunity to lead the college, telling the board his “head is full of ideas.”
WSCC will officially introduce their new president July 31st at the final Friday Night Live in Ludington.
