Dyersburg State Community College President Karen Bowyer was recently chosen to serve as a member of the West Tennessee STEM Governing Board, which serves as an overall guiding body to the West Tennessee STEM Collaboratory Project.
The board is comprised of about 10 members selected to reflect regional representation as well as diversity in terms of K-12, higher education, industry and community perspectives.
Its members meet twice a year and provide feedback in terms of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges to the sustainability of the Collaboratory Project.
In addition to Dr. Bowyer’s participation, Youlanda Jones-Wilcox, DSCC’s vice president for Institutional Advancement and Continuing Education, serves on the steering committee for the West Tennessee STEM Hub project.
This project impacts 37 Local Educational Agency partnerships in 20 counties which assess the effectiveness of different STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) teaching and learning strategies for the West Tennessee region.
