Message from the Committee Co-chairs

What a privilege it has been to be engaged with the Presidential Transition Advisory Committee and to focus on the future of Montgomery College (MC) and Montgomery County. We have worked with a diverse and distinguished group: business leaders, educational partners, heads of nonprofits and community groups, MC students, alumni, administrators, staff, faculty, and representatives from the Alumni Board, the Montgomery College Foundation, and the Pinkney Innovation Complex for Science and Technology Foundation. They have worked diligently and with dedication to the College’s mission, and have developed recommendations that we commend to President Jermaine F. Williams for his consideration in shaping the future direction of MC.

We thank Dr. Williams for the opportunity to lead this committee and to provide these insights. We look forward to Montgomery College’s continue growth and significant impact on our community. We want to extend our sincere thanks to each committee member. Your time and dedication to this work has been an inspiration.
