Gary Williams Welcomed as New Executive Director for Foundation and Grant Development of WSCC
Washington State Community College (WSCC) is proud to introduce Gary Williams as the new Executive Director for Foundation and Grant Development. The Foundation provides scholarships and funds for students seeking higher education through WSCC. Williams brings a lot to the table as the new Executive Director. His previous experience as the Director of Community Outreach has given him a lot of insight into students at WSCC as well as the community as a whole. Through the Outreach Program, Gary was able to help low income and first generation college students seek scholarships and succeed in school. He hopes to continue these efforts and receive even more support from the community. Williams believes that "everyone deserves access to higher education" and he sees the Foundation as a way to make that dream a reality.
In addition to his experience and passion for this field, Williams also has his own goals for WSCC and the Foundation in the next year. Williams stressed the importance of establishing a strong organization for the Alumni and friends of WSCC. This would give former students and community members a way to interact with current students, share their stories of success, and even give back to their alma mater. He also hopes to show the community how much the Foundation appreciates their continued support. The community is an inextricable part of the Foundation and is the main reason that the organization is able to help so many local students pay for school expenses. Williams is looking forward to his future at the WSCC Foundation, and everyone at WSCC is eager to see all that he can achieve.
