District Board

Board members are qualified to serve and provide a critical balancing perspective on WCTC's vision and direction. In addition to nine appointed members, there are four non-voting representatives: a WCTC student representative, a WCTC faculty representative, a WCTC support staff representative, and a WCTC Association of Professionals representative.

WCTC board members live, work, and pay taxes in our district and include a school district administrator, an elected official, current and former students, and organized labor and business leaders. The WCTC Board is a cohesive, interdependent team that works and serves well together.
