        Montgomery College’s "Council for the 21st Century," a community-based advisory body launched by Dr. Charlene R. Nunley when she was inaugurated last April as the college’s new president, will host a major conference to assess the education challenges that will likely face the College and the community in the years ahead.

        Highlighting the day-long conference will be a morning session with opening remarks by Dr. Nunley and a keynote address by Dr. Willard R. Daggett, a respected futurist on educational issues and the founder of the International Center for Leadership in Education.

        The Council for the 21st Century, as charged by Dr. Nunley, will help shape the vision and agenda for Montgomery College as it enters the next century. Comprised of business leaders, community representatives and College faculty and staff, the council is chaired by educational consultant Dr. Robert Shoenberg, chair of the Montgomery College Board of Trustees, and Mr. Solomon Graham, member of the Montgomery College Foundation, Inc. and president of Quality Biological, Inc.
