WCC Instructor Spotlight

Mary Beth Knight, Faculty Chair, Ashe Campus

Sharon Mitchell, English Instructor

“When my daughter missed her first Career & College Promise English class due to the first day of high school, her instructor went above and beyond to help her get caught up. My daughter is over the moon with her great class experience,” stated Kay Sexton, Blue Ridge Electric District Manager.

“We had a similar experience from her summer online class. Her psychology instructor, Mary Beth Knight, was unable to open my daughter’s last three assignments. After attempts to reach my daughter were unsuccessful, the instructor reached out to me explaining the situation and my daughter was able to resubmit the assignments and passed the class.  Our experiences with WCC are so wonderful and they just keep growing and impressing me to no end! What wonderful instructors you have and their compassion and caring for their students is top notch!”
