The fact that 75% of GCC alumni live within a 50-mile radius of the College means that GCC has a tremendous impact on my community. I see my support of the GCC Foundation as an investment in our community’s future.

2019 will mark 20 years as a proud volunteer on the GCC Foundation Board of Directors. I found great satisfaction during my four years as President and serving on the cabinet of all three building campaigns. Join with all GCC volunteers – GCC Today is a source of pride for all in our region. Visit, be impressed! Genesee Community College is there for you, your family, your neighbors – visit, use it!

Senior Vice President, Clark Patterson Lee

I have been involved with the GCC Foundation since 2006. Clark Patterson Lee was hired to renovate some of the existing buildings at College Village. Shortly thereafter I was invited to be on the Board.  Education is one of the pillars in any community. Having a community college that is responsive to the needs of the area, whether it be Agriculture Technology, or Nursing, or setting up a program that aligns with STAMP, is critically important to a community the size of the GLOW region. I was on the Cabinet for the last Capital Campaign and the impact of giving, whether it be your time or money, is something that is very impactful.
