New Western Nevada College Fallon Campus Director Jessica Rowe saw many welcoming faces at a meet-and-greet luncheon on Nov. 17 on the Fallon campus.
WNC President Dr. Vincent Solis, Senior Vice President and Provost Dr. Kyle Dalpe, Foundation Director Niki Gladys and Associated Students of Western Nevada President Andrea Sanchez De Loza were in attendance to congratulate and support Rowe in her new position. The luncheon also attracted members of the community, Fallon dignitaries, faculty and staff.
Rowe is a tenured English professor who has taught many students in Fallon and surrounding areas, as well as provided educational outreach to various rural communities in Northern Nevada. She assumed the role of Fallon campus director in August.
“I’ve dedicated much of my focus to working in rural communities throughout the region, having engaged in educational program-building through GEAR UP in the Hawthorne, Yerington, Silver Springs, and Schurz communities; taught with WNC in Yerington, Silver Springs, Hawthorne and Fallon; and worked to improve access and success for students from our vast rural community neighbors and partners,” Rowe said. “I’m passionate about making sustainable connections and about growing and stabilizing the communities I live in, care for, and serve.”
Students from the Churchill County High School’s culinary class prepared delicious meals for staff, faculty, Fallon dignitaries and community members.
