10,000 dollars in county funding for Adjunct professional development

A "neighborhood" watch for equity in course distribution as needed.

Monthly lunch meetings/conversations with FLCC President Dr. Nye

A high profile where we are known and valued here

...more to come!

Here is what we ask of you:
