Please join me in congratulating WCCC’s Alana Pulkkinen on her recent acceptance to the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center, 2015 Maine NEW (National Education for Women) Leadership Summer Institute at the University of Maine.  Alana is a student currently enrolled in our Adventure Recreation & Tourism and Liberal Studies programs at WCCC. 

The Leadership Institute is a free intensive residential program which “educates and empowers women to become a part of the next generation of effective civic and political leaders.”  While there, Alana will be engaging and networking with several female leaders in politics and civic organizations, she will be mentored by leaders, spend a day at the Maine State Legislature, and participate in a hands-on political action project related to women’s issues.  The goal of this program is to provide an exposure experience to encourage women to become more engaged in public affairs within our State. 

Congratulations Alana, we are very proud of you and know you will represent WCCC well!
