“Since Washtenaw Community College was only an idea, Tony Procassini has been woven into the fabric of this institution. He was a driving force behind its formation, served on its Board of Trustees for more than a quarter century, helped establish the WCC Foundation, and was a constant supporter and valued contributor to the WCC mission,” said WCC President Dr. Rose B. Bellanca.
WCC is one of 37 colleges and universities throughout the state recognized with the top-level Gold certification, meaning the school has met at least six of seven criteria. In all, 63 institutions earned either Gold, Silver or Bronze status from the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency.
Washtenaw Community College students will be streaming for good as they host a week-long Esports event Oct. 3-9 to raise money to purchase gaming devices for patients at the University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
