President Patricia C. Donohue Appointed
Technology Council Board of Directors
Windsor, N.J. -- The New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC)
has appointed MCCC President Patricia C. Donohue to join its
Board of Directors. Dr. Donohue will serve a two-year term,
replacing Edward Yaw, president of the County Council of Morris.
According to Maxine Ballen, president and CEO for the NJTC,
the Board looks forward to Dr. Donohue's contributions as
the sole community college representative. "The alignment
of educational institutions with the NJTC mission is critical.
We want students to attend New Jersey colleges and launch
their careers in the state," Ballen says. "The NJTC
is committed to the continued development of a highly educated
technology workforce ready to take on the challenges of the
21st century." She notes that the NJTC Education Foundation
brings business and academia together to help meet these goals.
According to Dr. Donohue, her new appointment also aligns
with Mercer's goals. "We seek to provide our students
with technology skills that will be valued in the workplace
and give them an edge in their careers. My appointment to
the NJTC Board will enable me to bring back what I learn from
business leaders to ensure that our students are well prepared
for the future."
Donohue joins the NJTC Board with solid experience in partnering
with the technology community. She was a founding member and
officer of the Central Pennsylvania Technology Council, serving
as secretary to the board from 1989 to 1992. She was the recipient
of the Outstanding Service Award in 1993.
Founded in 1996, the NJTC collectively represents almost 900
member companies from various technology sectors and institutions
that work together to support their own enterprises while advancing
New Jersey's status as a technology leader in the United States.
Among the council's services are programs on management and
marketing strategies, access to financing sources, networking
opportunities, advocacy for public policy that promotes economic
growth in the state, and recognition of business innovators
