Ron Pollock, the natural sciences instructor, is a Clarion native. He is returning from Texas where he was a biology and biotechnology adjunct faculty member at Lone Star College and Austin Community College, respectively.
Pollock’s home office and teaching site is still to be determined with his first classes being taught in Spring 2020.
The remaining three faculty members are English instructor Benjamin Blood, early childhood instructor Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser and manufacturing technology instructor Frank O’Connell.
Class instruction is delivered via live, interactive audio-visual communication technology that connects classrooms together across the region.
