Paul Moredock hired as the CCC Foundation's new Executive Director
On behalf of the Clackamas Community College Foundation, I am pleased to announce Paul Moredock as the new Clackamas Community College Foundation Executive Director, beginning Oct. 3.
 
The Executive Director of the Foundation is responsible in supporting the college staff and the Foundation Board of Directors as we raise funds to support our instructional innovations and excellence and meet our students' needs. Paul will also work closely with the Executive Director of Connections with Business and Industry and the Executive Director of College Relations and Marketing.      
 
Paul's development experience includes executive level positions at the University of Washington, Lewis & Clark College and Western Oregon University. Paul's experience in working with faculty to develop specific funding strategies supporting the educational programs aligns well with the mission of the Foundation.
 
You may already know Paul from his work over the previous four years with the ACT-ON team and the Business and Retail Management program. The program successfully served more than 600 students who were un- or under-employed, private sector employees requiring additional skills and current Clackamas Community College students.
 
I want to commend Vicki Smith, who has been serving as Interim Executive Director, for her leadership during the final stages of our Education That Works! campaign. Vicki will return to her position as the Assistant Executive Director and Major Gifts Officer. 
 
Highest Regards,
 
Joanne Truesdell
President of Clackamas Community College

Heartfelt thanks to all who contributed

The backdrop was a starlit evening overlooking the Clemans Sculpture Garden. Piano music wafted through the air on Sept. 15 as nearly 100 donors and guests celebrated the Foundation's successful $10 million Education That Works campaign.
 
Steering Committee Chair Scott Hamersly closed the campaign with a toast, just as he did when he announced the public phase of the campaign.
 
A Toast to You...

... a band of dedicated people who imagined a Clackamas Community College with more opportunity for students

... a bold and successful campaign to raise an improbable $10-million dollars in less than three years

... a celebration of Clackamas Community College and EDUCATION THAT WORKS

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead, anthropologist

James Streeter chaired the CCC math and engineering departments from 1967 to 1989. He loved teaching! While he could have had industry jobs, James chose instead to teach and found his home as he worked with others to get CCC established. He never doubted the choice he made. Sadly, James died at age 48, but his legacy at this college lives on through this scholarship, through the math curriculum that he developed and in the well-earned naming of Streeter Hall.
 
It is now Sharon Streeter, along with family and friends, who carries on James' commitment to education through her continuing financial support and encouragement to CCC students.
 
Sharon is a writer, poet, gardener, retired teacher, and strong advocate and supporter of Clackamas Community College. The James A. Streeter Memorial Endowed Scholarship, which she continues to build, supports students who embrace social conscience and responsibility, who strive for excellence and value access for all to education and knowledge as a means of enhancing lives.

Education That Works!

 

Sincerely,

   

Paul Moredock

Endowment Spotlight
Jane Rickenbaugh

Jane Rickenbaugh began working at Clackamas Community College in 1967. She started the college's dance program, taught speech and served as department chair of communications and the arts. In those early days, Jane was one of just 23 full-time CCC instructors who taught in modular buildings. Her dance classes, however, were scattered around the community and in the Smucker's jam factory on the CCC campus. Officially retired in 2003, Jane continued to teach dance and speech classes for many years.

With a family full of musicians, performance was part of Jane's upbringing. "Dance and Clackamas Community College have been my life," she explained. Her passion to make dance accessible for students led to the creation of the Jane Rickenbaugh endowment which will support the communication arts and dance programs at Clackamas.
