College chancellor is honored

Dr. Curtis L. Ivery
The American Association of Community Colleges celebrated Wayne County Community College (WCCCD) Chancellor Dr. Curtis L. Ivery recently during the Awards of Excellence gala.  Ivery received the first ever CEO of the Year award from the association, which recognized his national leadership in issues of educational equity and creating opportunity for students through higher education.  Ivery has served as chancellor of the Wayne County Community College District in Michigan since 1995. In his acceptance of the award, Ivery noted how over the past few years during COVID he has reflected on the work of the college to strengthen student success and equity, and the challenges ahead - but said he's “especially happy to see students returning to the college.” The Ted Scott Campus of the college is located at 9555 Haggerty Road in Belleville.
