Vail Daily letter: Warnick for CMC board

Please elect Jon Warnick as your next trustee of the Colorado Mountain College board.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jon for the last 15 years. I initially worked with him when I was the CEO of the CMC Foundation and he was the chair of the board. I found Jon to be a man of intellect, interest and commitment to providing affordable high quality education that is accessible to all students.

He does his homework, he comes prepared to meetings and asks thoughtful questions as both a lifelong learner and a business leader. He understands the issues facing all of the different types of students in our community, from high school students to first-generation college attendees to lifelong learners. He understands the governance principles of a well-run board; he honors the process. He is fully prepared to discuss issues facing both the board and the organization.

Jon has been one of the most engaged board members and board chairs I have had the pleasure of working with. He knows the communities CMC serves, he understands the complexities of each community and he makes a point of being present at every appropriate function supporting the college. As has been stated by many others who know Jon, he has a proven record of commitment and passion for education. Jon will be an asset to the college and therefore our communities.
