Mesa- Wendell Jones, Partner Emeritus, has joined the Mesa Community College (MCC) Development Board of Directors.

Wendell will work closely with the executive leadership Office of Development to help oversee the implementation of fundraising campaigns as well as monitor the progress. He will also assist in strategy development to ensure the college meets its fundraising goals in order to continue helping its students. Wendell decided to accept the position not only because his wife attended MCC, but also because he believes education is so important.

"I like to be involved in helping people become who they want to become. I like MCC's program because you have to achieve and work to receive a scholarship. They aren't just handed out. If I can help make a difference by pushing these scholarships to help students get through school, that's great," said Wendell.

MCC serves as a resource for college and career readiness, transfer education, workforce development and life-long learning.
