Board of Directors

Governance of the BTC Foundation represents the communities we serve.

The Board of Directors of the BTC Foundation provides for the future of our community by enabling students greater access to technical education at Blackhawk Technical College. Since 1978, more than 115 staff, alumni, community representatives and students have served on the BTC Foundation Board, helping the foundation grow from an idea, to an institution that has empowered hundreds of students to achieve their educational goals.

We express gratitude to Board members past and present for their commitment.
