Interim President’s Message

Scott Ward

I’d like to welcome you to West Shore Community College. At West Shore, student learning is our highest priority. For those of us who have the opportunity to work in higher education, our greatest privilege is making a positive difference in the lives of our students.


Thus, serving students is our number one priority. Nonetheless, we strive to serve virtually everyone in our area. We accomplish this through our efforts in economic development, by providing outstanding performing and visual arts programs, by introducing citizens to the ever-changing world of technology, by making campus facilities available to the general public, and by helping keep citizens healthy through the programs offered by the Wellness Center and Recreation Center.


At West Shore, we encourage our students to become active members of our learning community - to enter into a partnership in which students are asked to work hard at making learning their number one priority. We have an outstanding faculty, every member of which is ready to make each student's time on the campus one of special inspiration. These outstanding teachers, and all the other members of the WSCC team, are vitally interested in our students' success.


I’m proud of the institution we’ve built, and encourage you to capitalize on all we have to offer. I look forward to seeing you when you’re on campus or in our community.

Respectfully yours,

Scott Ward
