Member Event Chamber Event Art Performances & Education Calendar
Join us this month to hear from Dr. Wee, this is definitely one you won't want to miss.
Wee arrived in the USA on July 4, 1983 after serving in the Singapore Armed Forces. He received his education at the University of Arizona, Tucson. He has been an educator for over 25 years, first serving the University of Arizona, then Luther College, and since 2011 as president of Northeast Iowa Community College. Dr. Wee is a passionate and dedicated advocate for community vitality and economic development through education.
Wee straddles two cultures, sometimes successfully and other times not. He grew up in a rural village in Singapore. The Wee family history started in China and spans over 1,000 years with 41 generations recorded. A lesson he learned very early in life from his elders, and continuously reinforced over the years, was the importance of the collective and common good. As he progresses in life, Wee has a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of his elders’ teaching. Their teaching has impacted his personal and professional journey.
