PCC Welcomes New Foundation Director

18 July 2013

Ann Ruder is returning to Pratt Community College as the new Foundation Director, and she is on a mission to connect with college students, alumni, and the surrounding community. The Foundation Director is responsible for initiatives related to college funding, grants, scholarships, and alumni engagement.

Ruder's first week on the job included a grant-writing workshop in Haysville, meeting with area banks and attorneys, and preparation for the PCC Student Welcome Picnic in August.

"I want the foundation to be more open and visible to current students so that they will be more aware of the foundation before they graduate and so that they know where their scholarships are coming from," said Ruder.

Ruder is no stranger to Pratt Community College, having been part of the PCC family before as the Director of Admissions and Enrollment Services. PCC is happy to welcome her back in her new work with the Foundation, said Lisa Perez Miller, Vice President of Students/Enrollment Management.
