CCC Board Member Jane Reid Named Ford Community Fellow

 Jane Reid, who represents Estacada on the Clackamas Community College Board of Education, has been named a Ford Community Fellow. The award from the Ford Institute for Community Building is given to rural residents in Oregon and Siskiyou County, Calif., who have demonstrated a commitment to community service and a dedication to the pursuit of rural community vitality.

Ford Community Fellows are nominated by Ford Family Foundation staff and partner contractors who deliver the Ford Institute Leadership Program. Each of the eight Fellows recognized this year receives a $12,000 annual restricted monetary award. Fellows are expected to develop their own plan to explore, learn and practice the art of community living.

Reid has lived in Estacada for 36 years. Her community service career includes being a founding member and current chair of Estacada Area Arts Commission, vice-president of Estacada Together, secretary of Clackamas County Arts Alliance, founding member of Clackamas Cultural Coalition, an ASPIRE mentor and coordinator of the Powerhouse Project. She has served on the CCC Board of Education since 2007.

“This is such an amazing opportunity to focus and deepen my work in the community,” Reid said. “Many of the organizations and projects with which I am involved are at interesting points in their evolution, and I am excited about learning ways to contribute to their growth and change.” 

Reid has served on the CCC Board of Education since 2007.
