Voices for independent administrative college
Ms. Julie Larson and Ms. Ruth Wicks outlined the reasons for an independent administrative college to the Cottonwood City Council at its regular meeting on September 2. Ms. Larson is the former superintendent of the Cottonwood Oak Creek School District and Ms. Wicks is a former Mingus Union High School educator and counselor and former member of Yavapai Community College.
Ms. Larson explained that educational opportunities that once existed in the Verde Valley have gone away. “We want in the Verde Valley what Prescott has.”
Ms. Wicks pointed out that there are 10 Administrative Colleges in Maricopa County, which can act at least in part as a model for Yavapai County. For the full story from the Verde Independent, please click here.
