Vote for Weiss

It’s almost election time in the Colorado Mountain College District, time for you to be aware that your vote counts and that you can vote for candidates in the entire district. For example, even if you live in the Lake County District, you can vote for candidates running for the board of trustees in all six counties served by CMC.

Let me introduce myself. I served as president of CMC from 1986 to 1993. Helen Ginandes Weiss was on the board of trustees from Eagle County at that time as well. In 1989, CMC was selected by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s top community colleges, and she helped it win that prestigious honor. She was also one of our most popular adjunct professors and, with her husband, Martin, was an integral part of our success.

I know Helen and her dedication and commitment to education, and it is without hesitation that I recommend her to you. She was an excellent board member, and I believe she will do an outstanding job representing Lake County. Helen has kept up with the many changes in education because she is a lifelong educator with extensive experience. She is also a wife, mother, grandmother, active citizen and co-author of articles and books for parents and teachers.

Her weekly articles and books co-authored with her husband reveal exceptional insights into learning and a perceptive understanding of our complex modern world. She has successfully created and promoted strategies that help all students face the accelerated demands of today’s academic and vocational world. As an innovator in education she can apply these numerous skills to help CMC be the best it can be, a vital asset to an institution that serves over 21,000 students per year.

Her election to the board of trustees from Lake County will help ensure the continuing success of the Leadville campus and CMC as one of the best community colleges in the nation.
