Patricia C. Donohue, president of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, has been named to a two-year term on the board of directors of the New Jersey Technology Council.
“The alignment of educational institutions with the NJTC mission is critical. We want students to attend New Jersey colleges and launch their careers in the state,” says Maxine Ballen, president and CEO of the NJTC, adding that Donohue is the only community college representative on the board.
“The NJTC is committed to the continued development of a highly educated technology work force ready to take on the challenges of the 21st century,” says Ballen.
Donohue says her appointment aligns with MCCC’s goals. “We seek to provide our students with technology skills that will be valued in the workplace and give them an edge in their careers. My appointment to the NJTC Board will enable me to bring back what I learn from business leaders to ensure that our students are well prepared for the future.”
