Prioritizing Access for All

I’m running for the Lane Community College Board of Education, Position 6 (at-large) because I want to help LCC become an even better resource for our community. I will work to increase access to education for all students, increase support for students, and work with local businesses to increase job training programs so that students can obtain meaningful employment after graduating from LCC. I am a long-time Lane County resident and a proud alumnus of LCC.

Meet Kevin 

I am passionate about increasing access for all students wanting to attend Lane Community College to gain new skills for a better job, explore different career or educational options, or to prepare for a four-year university. I want to work with the LCC Board, president, student groups, faculty, staff, and community partners to increase opportunities for LCC students. I am a proud LCC alumnus and a long-time resident of Lane County.

I have nearly 20 years classroom teaching experience as a university professor and I know what it takes to support all students, including BIPOC and other marginalized student populations. As a professor in Family and Human Services, I have a proven track record in meeting the complex needs of students, including financial, educational, and emotional supports. I am committed to the idea that what is good for LCC students is good for our community.

My previous experiences make me well qualified to help lead LCC into the 21st century. My 20 years as a construction engineer and local business owner helped shape my skills as a collaborative problem-solver. My experience as a university professor allowed me to learn what it takes to support students’ success in the classroom and beyond. My work with nonprofit boards helped me better understand how to help make our community healthier and more resilient. My work with governmental agencies helped me better understand the importance of well functioning public agencies and their role in making our community stronger.
