Ruth Wicks applauds cooperation from College but looks for action
Ruth Wicks, who has been a leader in the effort to bring about major change in the Community College educational opportunities of students and adults in the Verde Valley, asked for cooperation and looked for action in her recent “My Turn” column in the Verde Independent.
Wicks wrote that “the leadership of the college appears presently to be listening to our needs and concerns. There is talk about not transferring the Nursing program to Prescott and reinstating the Digital Media and Film program. Another indicator of their willingness to work with us is the stunning reversal to not sell the Sedona campus as was voted on by our Yavapai College District Governing Board in the adoption of the Ten Year Plan.”
She also wrote that: “Actions speak louder than words and we await the college’s actual investment of monies, staff, programs and the creation of our own college, Verde Valley Community College, under the auspices of Yavapai College.”
