Holiday Message from the President

As we near the end of 2012, it is natural to spend some time in reflection both individually and collectively. As we remember our many individual and college accomplishments and set goals for the coming year, I am reminded of the following quote:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
— Nelson Mandela

Our faculty and staff make significant contributions through service and leadership on local, state and national organizations. Our students have received numerous recognitions for their academic, athletic and volunteer achievements. Our alumni inspire us through their professional achievements, dedication and service to community, and fulfillment of Olympic dreams.

I am grateful for the unique contributions so many individuals make to Waubonsee Community College and our vibrant learning community. I truly value each of the partnerships and collaborations represented by our students, district residents and organizations, faculty, staff, and colleagues. As you celebrate this holiday season, I encourage you to take time to consider this question; what can I do in 2013 to change the world?

Happy Holidays!

Christine J. Sobek, Ed.D., President
