GENERAL ELECTION 2014 BALLOT STATEMENT
SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT
Board of Trustees
DONNA J. WOODRUM, M.S. Clinical Psychology
Former Director of Clinician Training in EEG Biofeedback
My nonprofit, American Culture Council (ACC) is partnered with two national home improvement organizations. ACC and our partners’ goal is to refurbish homes of qualified and/or disabled American
Veteran homeowners. Labor is provided by volunteers while materials are paid for by Foundations and donations from private citizens.
I am the daughter, sister, wife, and mother of Military Veterans, who have a combined 84 years of honorable service. I understand and empathize with those serving our nation in uniform, those who
have served, and their families.
San Diego has the largest Veteran population in the country. While on active duty, military personnel are encouraged to expand their education outside their military training. The local community
college is the best place to enhance their education. The San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) can improve their outreach to our Veterans by having a Trustee on the Board who understands
their specific and various education, training, and financial needs.
Veterans wanting to utilize their military training for civilian employment can develop their opportunities with Continuing Education courses, or enrollment in Degree programs. One program that
does not exist that I will work to create is an Entrepreneur program for Veterans (or anyone else) who want to start their own business.
The SDCCD outreach to Active Duty and Veterans is currently somewhat limited. My tenure as Trustee will widen this outreach and appeal to more military and Veterans to attend our colleges and
continuing education programs. Increasing the enrollment of the Military student will increase revenue to the District, while creating a better-educated and prepared workforce.
As former Director of Clinician Training in one of the largest EEG Biofeedback clinics in the nation, I established Training Programs for Clinicians, who treated patients with varying disorders,
ranging from PTSD, Chronic Pain, Depression and other complaints.
As a Trustee, I will facilitate marketing and communication of the wonderfully effective work done through the SDCCD Acquired Brain Injury Program.
This remarkable program repairs shattered lives, restores families, and offers hope to the Injured.
I bring a unique education, experience, skill-sets, and history to the San Diego Community College District Board of Trustees.
I appreciate your vote and, when elected, I look forward to continuing to serve our community as
