Board of Directors
Meet our WCC Foundation Board of Directors, comprised of community leaders who volunteer their time to manage the activity of the WCC Foundation.
The mission of the Women's Council is to endow scholarships for women based on leadership and academic excellence, build a mentoring program, and provide services and resources that support the women of Washtenaw Community College. The annual Women's Council Celebration Luncheon raises money to support this mission by honoring women who have made significant contributions to the Washtenaw County community. To meet the goals of their mission, the Women's Council provides a variety of giving opportunities and events throughout the year.
