Washington State Community College (WSCC) President Dr. Bradley Ebersole was honored during the Presidents Academy Hail and Farewell Luncheon at the 2012 Annual Conference for the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in Orlando, Fla.

Due to Dr. Ebersole’s recent induction as WSCC President in September 2011, he received the First-Time CEO honor during the luncheon, along with 25 others. Dr. Ebersole says he was very pleased to represent WSCC with this national recognition. “Increasingly Washington State is becoming identified as one of the leading rural community colleges in the country,” notes Ebersole.
Two WSCC administration members, Robyn Hoffman, executive director for institutional advancement, and Claudia Owens, executive director of public relations & communication, also attended the conference luncheon.
Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and New York Times best-selling author, was the keynote speaker for the Presidents luncheon. The AACC Presidents Academy is premier professional development resource, able to honor CEOs at this special convention event.
