DCC’s 65th Anniversary Series: Honoring Faculty Past and Present

Left to right: David, Bob, and Elizabeth Derr with Mark Worley and President Smith In DCC faculty lore, we have a story about a beginning of the year meeting where the College’s president (who will remain nameless) was talking about changing the College’s mission statement. A young professor (who will also remain nameless) felt the need to remind the president that, whatever happened with the mission statement, the mission of the College needed to involve educating students, because that’s what colleges do.
