Michele Jenkins has had a connection to COC since the very beginning: She was a member of the community college’s first graduating class.

She’s been giving back ever since, and has served on the board for more than 30 years, helping guide COC through its amazing periods of growth, including the establishment of its second campus, in Canyon Country.

Jenkins, also a recipient of COC’s Distinguished Alumni award, manages her husband’s three-physician family medical practice while working tirelessly to secure local, state and federal funding to help COC continue expanding its offerings to meet the growing educational needs of the college’s students. 

Jenkins’ experience and continued passion for service will help COC continue its place among the best community colleges in not just the state, but the nation.
