Our family has had a strong relationship with Amarillo College. Each of our kids has taken classes there, either through the Suzuki String Program, Fencing, or the Conservatory Theater.  My wife, Suzanne, and I have taken ball room dancing, and I've even learned to fall down in Aikido class.

I believe Amarillo College is one of the crown jewels of our community, but the world is changing, education is changing, students are changing, and our city's needs are changing. I want to help Amarillo College confront and embrace those changes by doing the following:

  • I will continue building AC's brand into one of nationally recognized educational success and training.
  • I will work to create different revenue models for Amarillo College that rely less on taxes and more on innovation.
  • I will keep Amarillo citizens consistently informed regarding the state of the college. You're the boss and deserve to know what's going on.
  • About Mark . . .
