Over 13 million people are served by the work of today’s guest, Martha Parham. 13 million students attend the nearly 1,200 community colleges around the United States (and world) that are part of the American Association of Community Colleges — and their positive impact is felt by the families and communities that are improved by the education these students receive. As Senior Vice President of Public Relations, Martha Parham helps communicate the tremendous benefits available to those considering an associate’s degree. An increase in apprenticeship and workforce training programs is making community colleges more popular and successful than ever and the skills from a two-year degree can help set these students up for life.
The American Association of Community Colleges provides leadership, communication, research, and advocacy for the nation’s 1,100 community colleges and the 12-million students they serve in both traditional and career programs.
