MCC Administrator Attends Leadership Summit
(Bradenton, Fla., June 2, 2005) - Daisy Vulovich, executive director of the Manatee Community College (MCC) Center for Corporate and Community Development, recently attended a two-day Business and Professional Women's Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. More than 350 participants from 41 states attended. Each was nominated by a member of Congress.
"The sessions allowed us to have a meaningful dialogue about growing the economy, educating our children, providing affordable health care and strengthening retirement security," said U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson (Texas), the summit chair.
Keynote speaker was U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings. Other speakers and panel participants included three other senators and several members of President George Bush's administration.
Vulovich is a graduate of the Leadership Manatee program sponsored by the Manatee Chamber of Commerce and Kiwanis Club of Bradenton. A first-generation American whose parents emigrated from Yugoslavia, she was the first one in her family to complete college. The MCC center she heads is a provider of quality learning to people of all ages through noncredit continuing education, community services and credit-related activities.
