I am writing to endorse Ellen Weissinger in her bid to win election to the Southeast Community College Board of Governors. Ellen is a friend and former co-worker whom I view as exceptionally well qualified for this role.'
She has extensive educational experience from a long and respected career at the University of Nebraska, where she was both an educator and administrator. In our working relationship after her retirement from UNL, she demonstrated a clear vision of the importance of SCC's role in preparing students for critical jobs in Lincoln and Nebraska.
Those are Ellen's business qualifications. I'd also like to speak about her personal qualifications.
Ellen has a special empathy for people that allows her to see all sides to situations. In my 40 years of business experience, I have known few people more purposeful and careful in thinking about the needs of an organization and the people involved.
I trust her to be an effective part of the leadership for this important institution and encourage you to vote for her in the May 15 primary.
Mac Rodgers, Lincoln
