Eliminate the obstacles and barriers to success
I believe in lifelong learning and that every resident of Wyandotte County should have access to quality education from Pre-K to the grave.
Open doors for Wyco residents to higher education
I believe KCKCC is an intricate part of our public education system. I think it’s important that we become a better community partner for not only our residents in Wyandotte County but to the businesses and corporations in our community and beyond.
Be more efficient and effective in day-to-day operations
I believe we should look for ways to be more efficient and effective in day-to-day operations and identify funding sources to make going to college more affordable for students.
