Paul W. Smith is a nationally renowned radio talk show host on WJR Radio. As I write, (the morning of May 18, 2017) he is on campus doing a live broadcast in the La-Z-Boy atrium. I had the pleasure and privilege of being his first guest this morning at 6:15 a.m. I normally do not wake up that early. Paul ‘W’ is a proud product of Monroe County Community College and he makes that known every chance he gets. Thank you, Paul W. for helping the world see the value of MCCC.
This morning, I had less than five minutes to answer Paul’s questions about the projects we are working on with the millage funds, HVAC progress, enrollment, and new programs in Agriculture and Auto Service. Joe Verkennes and his Marketing Team deserve all the credit for making the arrangements and assisting with my talking points. Indeed, there were many hours spent behind the scenes to bring this event to fruition.
This Paul ‘W’ broadcast would not be possible without our sponsors. So, a very special thanks to our sponsors: DTE Energy, Promedica Monroe Regional Hospital, La-Z-Boy Inc., and Monroe Bank and Trust. Those are the “big four” of our community and they are stalwart supporters of this institution. We appreciate them more than they will ever know.
