WCC is a place of opportunity, outstanding achievement and sometimes second chances, often in the face of enormous odds. With a devoted faculty and staff committed to students’ success, Whatcom offers an experience unparalleled at comparable educational institutions. 

The goal of the Whatcom Community College Foundation is to ensure access to higher education for students from all backgrounds, and to promote academic innovation and excellence on our campus. Thanks to our generous donors, more students are discovering and achieving their dreams at Whatcom.  

WCC Foundation Honors Bob Winters

Bob Winters at Board Reception

Bob Winters has served on the WCC Foundation board of directors since 2010 as the faculty representative for the College. Bob’s commitment and dedication to the College and to the WCC Foundation are impressive. In 1985 Bob began teaching English at Whatcom with an emphasis on literature and film. He was an ambassador for the College during our 50th anniversary year in 2017 and led many presentations celebrating WCC’s rich history. In addition to teaching, Bob has served as Chair of the Arts and Humanities Division at WCC.

The WCC Foundation board of directors have created a scholarship honoring Bob, which will support students in the humanities. On May 30th, Pickford Film Center and the WCC Filmmakers Club will host a free showing of Stagecoach in celebration of Bob’s legacy at WCC! We hope you’ll be able to attend, and please consider making a gift to the Bob Winters Humanities Scholarship even if you can’t join us!
