WCC is where I come from

Laurie Wadhams and her husband Tim are leading the Washtenaw Community College Foundation’s Campaign for Success. To date, the Campaign has garnered over $8 million in contributions and pledges, far and away the most successful fund raising effort in the college’s 50-year history. The contributions will support faculty innovation and student scholarships and success. Wadhams, who is also the Foundation Board Secretary and serves on the Women’s Council, credits the success to a number of factors: “We have a fabulous, very active and engaged leadership committee. We have benefitted from WCC’s outstanding reputation and from the leadership and support of President Dr. Rose Bellanca, former Vice President of Advancement Wendy Lawson and current Executive Director Julaine LeDuc,” she said. “Donors have stepped up and are very generous. We anticipate the community will continue to support WCC, and the numbers should continue to grow.”
