“I can say it was absolutely fun, exciting, and what an opportunity to be a part of West Shore because it is our community college.” Said James Pinkerton, one of the nine inducted into the Mentor society on Friday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of West Shore Community College’s founding.
The Mentor Society was created to recognize people for their leadership in the founding and development of West Shore Community College. Inductees also included Sharon Bluhm, Darwin Booher, Ruth Gustafson, Chrissie and David Hall, Jack and Shirley Rasmussen and Gerald Svendor.
This years founder's celebration included the creation of the new Cornerstone Society, designed to honor businesses, organizations, and foundations that provided financial resources to move the college forward. The first group of Cornerstone Society inductees included West Shore Bank, the Delta Foundation and the Paine Family Foundation.
