Michele Hays for Oakton Community College Trustee

Connecting Oakton With You

As a child and sibling of college professors, I was effectively raised on-campus. However, I am now part of a blue-collar family: my husband is an Evanston Firefighter whose career began at Oakton Community College. This ability to bridge different experiences has enabled my success in connecting people in need to resources.

I believe that Oakton Community College is a grossly undervalued resource, especially for workforce development programs but also as a gateway to 4-year institutions, and I think I can bring it more attention, increase participation, and uncover and help remove barriers to access. All communities in District 535 can benefit from the programming Oakton offers, and I am eager to serve its diverse constituency.
