Women's Council Lifetime Service to Students Award

Diana McKnight-Morton

Diana McKnight-Morton

WCC Board of Trustee Member

The WCC Foundation Women’s Council is commemorating its 25th Anniversary by establishing a new lifetime achievement award that will honor individuals who have worked tirelessly for years to ensure that all Washtenaw Community College students could be successful. Washtenaw Community College and the Washtenaw Community College Foundation are pleased to announce that the inaugural Women’s Council Lifetime Service to Students Award will be presented to Diana McKnight-Morton.

Mrs. McKnight-Morton is being recognized for her decades of continuous hard work and commitment to ensuring that students, especially women, from Washtenaw County have had access to the support needed for them to succeed during their educational journeys at WCC. Her efforts during more than two decades of service have had an enormous impact on countless numbers of WCC students.

Diana has served as an elected member of the WCC Board of Trustees for 25 years where she has relentlessly advocated for WCC students in numerous ways. Diana began her own educational journey at WCC before transferring to the University of Michigan. During her many years of working on behalf of our students, she has been emblematic of the volunteer spirit and leadership that the Women’s Council embraces. Diana’s service to the College is unprecedented in the College's history.

Consistent with its long history of promoting and recognizing outstanding women from this community, the Women’s Council will be delighted to present Diana McKnight-Morton with the Lifetime Service to Students Award at the 25th Annual Women’s Council Celebration on May 25, 2022.
