Janice Michael Joins Bridges to College Board

Janice Michael, the dean of the Darke County Campus of Edison Community College, recently joined the Bridges to College program’s board of directors.

“Janice brings a wealth of knowledge about college and financial aid to our board,” said Bill LaFramboise, who chairs the board.

Bridges to College, a non-profit organization that formed in 2006, helps more students go to college by offering one-on-one mentoring, educational programming, and scholarships. It serves students in Greenville and Ansonia school districts.

Michael has served as dean of the Darke County Campus since 1992. Prior to serving as dean, she worked as one of Edison’s professional academic advisors for four years. Since 1982 she has been an adjunct instructor in economics and continues to teach one class online each semester.

“Janice understands Darke County and also understands first generation students – or students who are the first in their families to go to college,” said Beth Sears, Bridge to College executive director.
Michael, who received her history/teacher education bachelor’s degree from Ohio Northern University, was the first of her family to graduate college. She completed her Masters of Science degree in administration through Central Michigan University’s distance learning program housed on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

Michael joins Kevin Blakeley, Aaron Cox, Ryan Cox, Bill LaFramboise, Marlise McCallister, Chris Mortensen, Marc Saluk, Chris Seger, Diane Swallow, Brian Swiger, and Rhonda Williams on the board.
