Florence Meet the Dean

Fall 2016 Director's Message

Russ Pierson

It's another fall in Florence—my favorite time of the year in one of the most fabulous places on the planet!

Autumn is a kind of "second New Year" for many of us, offering a chance to shake things up, start a new routine and better ourselves. If you're one of our remarkable credit students, I commend you for your commitment to yourself and to your future. You're on your way to a "new you," with new confidence and expertise. You can do this! 

Many of the rest of us in our community are committed to lifelong learning—to adding new skills, integrating new information and generally bettering ourselves. I encourage you to join us in one of our continuing education classes or our Outward Ventures. Right here in Florence, you will discover many opportunities for engaging conversations, personal empowerment and enrichment, and rewarding adventure.

If you aren't enrolled this term, here's the great thing about the Florence Center: you don't have to wait till next fall—you can start any time! So if you are looking to earn a certificate or degree that might net you a new career—or if you are on your way to earning your degree—please consider making us your first stop. We would love to sit down with you and discuss the possibilities and the promise together. 

Lane Community College Florence Center is a wonderful place filled with great people. Won't you join us?

Thanks so much for your support of Lane Community College at Florence. Please stop in and see us at the LCC Florence Center, 3149 Oak Street. 

Happy autumn,

-- Russ Pierson, DMin, CEFP, cSBA
