Arterberry respects teaching and learning

This letter is in support of Stan Arterberry for the Maricopa Community College Governing Board. I was privileged to serve as Mission College president during his tenure as chancellor of the West Valley Mission Community College District in California’s Silicon Valley. Arterberry was an outstanding administrator, exceptionally skilled at balancing the needs and interests of students, the community, faculty, and staff.

An educator at heart, Arterberry puts students and learning first and he understands what teachers and support staff need to help students achieve their goals. Arterberry’s record of achievement and lifelong commitment to community colleges and their unique mission speaks for itself.

However, I would like to emphasize one quality that I believe makes him the best choice to represent Maricopa Colleges — respect. Arterberry respects teaching and learning; he is an educator through and through. Arterberry respects the often complex and occasionally tumultuous decision-making process. He is an exceptional listener.

No matter who comes before him, no matter what their issue or position, Arterberry will respectfully listen to them. Those who come before the Governing Board should expect no less and even if their position does not prevail, they should feel that they got a fair hearing. Arterberry will ensure that those he represents will have that opportunity.
