Farewell Message from the President

""It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve as the President of NorthWest Arkansas Community College these past 10 years.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve in my native state and be a part of such a wonderful community.

Our focus has always been on the students we serve, and I am so grateful for the chance to have had a role in helping the people in our community pursue their dreams.

A special thanks goes out to the talented and dedicated team of faculty, staff and administrators who have helped this institution grow and achieve magnificent things. I am confident that NWACC will continue to be a shining jewel among community colleges, and I wish the institution and its new President, Dr. Evelyn Jorgenson, the best.

Thank you again for the opportunity to serve. It has been a joy to be a small part of touching so many lives in a positive and lasting way.


Becky Paneitz, Ph.D.
President Emerita
