Guest Commentary

When Ronald Reagan declared April as Community College month in 1986, John Wood Community College was in its adolescence -- just 12 years old. Now celebrating our 45th year, we have transformed into a community partner and Trail Blazer in education.


Josh Welker, 34, lives outside of Canton, Mo., with his wife Brittany, and his two sons, Weston and Nolan. He works at John Wood Community College in Quincy.
