“From my initial introduction to JCCC in the late 1990s, I saw Lynn Mitchelson as a leader of the college and an advocate for students,” said Steve Wilkinson, president and CEO of Menorah Hospital and JCCC Foundation president. “Over the ensuing years, I watched Lynn demonstrate his commitment in many different ways. Lynn Mitchelson’s name has been synonymous with leadership and JCCC. I’m pleased he is being honored this year.”
“The college is pleased to honor Lynn Mitchelson in this way,” said Terry Calaway, JCCC president. “In addition to all his civic work, Lynn has been a tireless supporter of JCCC for many, many years, serving with the Foundation and on the college’s board of trustees.
