Kevin Walthers Ph,D., Superintendent / President of Hancock College
Kevin Walters, past President of The Rotary Club of Santa Maria Breakfast, talked to us about the "Changing The Odds" program at Hancock College. Any student taking 12 units or more is considered to be a full time student and tuition is free for those students. The goal is clearly to have more students graduate with a degree because a student with a degree is more likely to land a good job with a future. A win win for everyone.
Allan Hancock College has been named one of the nation’s top 150 community colleges and is eligible to compete for the 2023 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence and $1 million in prize funds. This is the fifth time that Hancock has been recognized by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program.
“Hancock is honored to be recognized for the amazing work that our faculty, staff and administrators do to support our students and ensure their success,” said Hancock Superintendent/President Kevin G. Walthers, Ph.D. “This is further evidence that our college is truly changing the odds for our students and our community.”
