Odessa College announces Pecos director
Odessa College announced the appointment of Michelle Workman as new director
of the Pecos Community College Center/Odessa College.
Workman, former career planning coordinator for the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah
ISD, joined OC's staff July 28 and will be stationed at OC's future extension
center in Pecos. The center will have the potential to conduct many classes
currently offered at the main campus, according to Ned Pilcher, dean of
arts, humanities and distance education.
"I love challenges," said Workman. "This is a great chance to help the
community and area."
The new director noted one of her challenges will be setting the groundwork
for students considering college at the extension center.
"I plan to spend a lot of time with the Pecos High School counselors.
It's also important to include parents in the process."
Workman, a Pecos native, worked in the school system for 10 years. She
graduated from Midland College with an associate's degree and Texas Tech
University with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education with
a bilingual certification. Workman received her master's degree in counseling
from Sul Ross University.
She began her career as an elementary school teacher, but for the last
seven years, Workman has been involved in developing and administering
a student career development program. In her last year with the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah
ISD, Workman also served as a middle school counselor and GED district
"My new position at OC is a continuation of the work I've been doing
in the school district - helping students and parents prepare for the future."
Workman's immediate plans include establishing a temporary office at
320 S. Oak, Suite 4. She can be reached at 445-5535 or fax 445-5534.
"Everything is in the planning stage," said the new director, "except
our mission - which is to serve the community...I'm ready to go."
