Margie Eklund, Senior Citizen Group Representative
Education is the stepping stone to achievement in life. College of the Desert is the gem of the Coachella Valley, providing educational opportunities for our residents. During my career I have worked at Marist College, a small private college in New York, and Dutchess Community College of the State University of New York. Prior to moving to California I worked for Astor Services for Children and Families, an organization that had a three times designated Blue Ribbon school. I had the opportunity to work in the Office of Instruction at College of the Desert for several years. Now that I am retired I would like to contribute and give back.
