This unfortunate situation for JCCC Trustee Stephanie Sharp could be just what JCCC needs.
The college would be wise to highlight all the resources at hand to help job seekers using Sharp as “everyman” (well, everywoman … everyperson?).
And frankly, with the beating JCCC has been taking in the press, letting the campus community see the humanity of a trustee could go a long way — especially with trustee elections coming up in April.
My advice to JCCC and Trustee Sharp is to embrace this opportunity to reconnect with the campus community and create a teachable moment not just for students but for everyone.
