I enjoyed reading The Independent story introducing Jerry Wallace as the new Central Community College-Hastings president. I applaud Wallace’s desire to visit middle schools and high schools in Central Nebraska to inform students that they can go to school in their own backyard to get a great education at CCC.

A key to the success of this endeavor is to educate parents as much as the students to let them know CCC is here in Central Nebraska and offers education programs that will lead to successful careers. Employers are waiting to hire CCC graduates — a fact that cannot be denied.
