Position 1Dr. Priscilla Metcalf

Employment: Wharton Eye Associates.

Why I became a WCJC Trustee: I was born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin by parents who instilled in me the belief one should give back in community service. Nearly 40 years ago I moved to Wharton to join South Texas Medical Clinic as their eye surgeon. Then, five years ago, I established Wharton Eye Associates. My strength, I believe, is that I listen and can see merit in various points of view. Issues rarely have only one solution. Rather, one may be better than others. I have opinions, but they are not set in stone.

What I like most about being a WCJC board member:  

WCJC benefits the community by:  I want to see WCJC succeed to be proactive. We need to look to employers and the community to access areas of need and expand our technical training courses. We also need to ensure that credits earned here are transferable to any four-year college program. That degrees here transfer to employment opportunities. We need to partner with employers and communities to assess needs and possible expansion of technical courses. I will work hard and listen to ensure WCJC survives and flourishes.

When I became a board member: 2022
