Pima Community College Chancellor Lee D. Lambert has been named to two key leadership positions at the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the primary advocacy organization for the nearly 13 million students enrolled in community colleges in the U.S.

Chancellor Lambert will serve on AACC’s eight-person Executive Committee in 2013-14. The Executive Committee is drawn from AACC’s 32-person Board of Directors and is responsible for keeping AACC accountable to its nearly 1,200 member institutions.

Chancellor Lambert also will chair AACC’s Committee on Program Initiatives and Workforce Training, which seeks to build community college capacity to meet the needs of labor markets across the U.S.

“I am honored to serve AACC during this exciting time in higher education,” Chancellor Lambert says. “Community colleges are assuming an increasingly critical role in preparing the U.S. workforce to successfully compete in the global job market.”

Chancellor Lambert, who has served on the AACC Board of Directors since July 2012, has been PCC Chancellor since July 1, 2013.  Before coming to PCC, Chancellor Lambert was President of Shoreline Community College in Shoreline, Wash., outside Seattle. He also served as Interim President, and was Vice President for Human Resources and Legal Affairs at Shoreline from January 2005-June 2006.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
