Meet our Closing the Gap Guest Speaker, Dr. Lisa Avery, President of Linn-Benton Community College.

Dr. Lisa Avery has been an educator for more than two decades and is now the current President of Linn-Benton Community College. She is making a name for herself as being a great leader through her accessibility to the community and engaging presence on the Linn-Benton Community College campuses. Join us as we discuss how her career led her to this point, why community colleges are so important to the areas they serve, and why a post-secondary education should really be considered.
