Retirement Open House To Honor NMC's Nelson
By Beth Milligan | Nov. 7, 2019
Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) will hold a retirement open house to honor outgoing President Tim Nelson on Tuesday, November 12 from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the Dennos Museum Center. The event is open to students, faculty, staff, and community members.
Nelson is the longest-serving president of the college - having held the role for over 18 years - and will retire December 31, with Dr. Nick Nissley assuming the helm. Before becoming president in 2001, Nelson served as NMC’s executive director of administrative services. He was the college’s residence hall and apartment supervisor from 1975 to 1977.
“I have committed myself to our ultimate purpose, which is to provide our learners and communities with the skills, experiences and values that will help them to create social and economic wealth during their lifetimes,” says Nelson. “I am humbled to think that as I look to the future, the people, programs and systems that we have developed together, position this institution for continued success in meeting that purpose well into the future.”
