My recollections of my time at the college are for you, current and prospective students.

It is the mission and privilege of the Three Rivers faculty and staff to assist you in reaching your potential, both personally and economically. Honestly, you couldn’t be in better hands.

My 31 years of counseling, teaching and listening to the needs and aspirations of hundreds of adult students has taught me the following:

  • Self-reliance is powerfully American. Yet, as learners, you will be vulnerable to your limitations. You would be wise to ask for help.
  • There has been nothing more rewarding for those of us working in our community colleges than to assist those intent on helping themselves. Reach out.
  • You are in a community of fine and dedicated people whose goal is to help you become the best you can be. For me, it has been an honor.
