This is NWACC's President, Becky Paneitz. Her reign at NWACC has been riddled with scandals, corruption, and "academic bullying". Thankfully she is on her way out. We strongly hope the Arkansas Department of Higher Education will hold her accountable for her uncountable wrong-doings.
This is how her mission statement reads (http://nwacc.edu/web/presidentsoffice/):
