Editor, The News: ' On Nov. 5 the voters in Washtenaw I County will be asked to approve a renewI al of one mili for Washtenaw Community I College; I would urge voters to continue I the present level of support because WCC I is a good investment in the youth and I adults of our community, and the comI munity itself. The homeowner's property value is enI hanced by the fact that we have a community college which is aimed at I developing the human potential of youth I and adults not served by other instituI tions in Washtenaw County; the emphaI sis which WCC has given to the preparaI tion of men and women for productive I careers in areas of employment where I the manpower needs are most acute I can't help but improve the economie and I social conditions of both the individual I and the community. Furthermore, since WCC is a "comI munity" college, the emphasis is on loI cal manpower needs. Those agencies in I our community devoted to human víces - mospitalsnursing homes, welI fare agencies, youth organiza tions, child I care centers, etc. - are staffed with I better-qualified paraprofessional workers I because WCC has prepared them fpr caI reers in these important community serI vices. WCC not only prepares people for I entry into employment, but it also serves I on a part-time basis those already emI ployed. Businessmen, industrialists and I managers of our service institu tions, who I have employed WCC'graduates, have tesI tified to the quality of their services as I productive citizens of our community. Property owners as well as businessI men and industrialists should be aware I of the fact that the one-mill renewal be1 ing requested by the WCC Board of I Trustees is really an investment in the future of our community, both ecoríomi] cally and socially.
