Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:
The past weeks have brought rapidly changing circumstances, and there have been many actions initiated by our country, state and communities to protect us from COVID-19. At Wharton County Junior College, our administration and Board of Trustees have worked swiftly to initiate methods that allow us to continue to provide quality instruction and services to our students while doing so in the safest environment possible. To achieve this, we recently moved all courses online for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, an action that has required all, students, faculty, and staff alike, to display a tremendous amount of flexibility, cooperation and perseverance. As we near the end of the spring semester, I want you to know how proud I am of each of you for adapting to this new challenge and for making this necessary measure a success. Thank you.
As we look toward the future, please know that your safety remains the top priority of our college. We will continue to monitor the state and local regulations that are in place for the safety and well-being of all, and continue to use them to guide us as we make decisions regarding the basic operations of the college and the delivery of instruction and services to students.
At this time, we will be offering summer classes online with the exception of some technical programs. For a complete list of these technical programs and how they will be structured, please contact either the program directors or any Wharton County Junior College student advisor.
Like everyone, it is my heart-felt desire that we may all return, safely, to normal operations soon. Until then, please monitor the COVID-19 section of the Wharton County Junior College web site where current information surrounding college operations and information pertinent to students and staff can be found.
In closing, I appreciate your extraordinary efforts during this challenging time. Students, I am very proud of your dedicated and courageous efforts to persevere in your studies. To the faculty and staff, please know that your expertise, willingness to adapt, and your constant service to students are actions for which I am most grateful.
Thank you for being a valued member of the WCJC family.
In Pioneer spirit,
Betty A. McCrohan
