Looking Back...Comments and Quotes from RRCC Staff and Alumni

“In 1973 we moved to the new RRCC campus, a marvelous location and facility, which provided a very pleasant working and learning environment. Deer could often be seen outside office windows.”

Carol Baden, BSN, M.Ed, RN faculty member/program coordinator; creator of the Physician Assistant Program in 1997

“They taught, enlightened, encouraged and showed me all my possibilities at a time when I felt I had none. I didn’t know that I was capable of going to college, becoming a good student and comprehending and retaining all that I had learned. I built my self-esteem and realized that I am a unique individual with a lot of potential.”

Nan S., Student from Pathways program

“RRCC faculty, staff and administrators were always family. I think students felt that, as well. RRCC is still successful after 40 years, because we always placed the student first.”

Ben Yohe, Ph.D., a former Dean of Instruction

“Because the college is able to experiment with new classes and programs, it revitalizes itself by drawing new and different faculty. This revitalization is the essence of RRCC’s success and continuity.”

Carla Joy, retired history instructor
