On September 1, Jalene Mauws was welcomed into her new position at CLASS as CEO.
In January 2019, Mauws was attracted to an advertised open job position at CLASS as a program coordinator, and saw the job as an opportunity to become more involved in the community.
“I just felt the need to apply and it worked out,” Mauws said with a chuckle.
CLASS is known most for what it offers within Vermilion, not in surrounding areas. As CEO, Mauws is looking forward to extending their reach and raising awareness about CLASS programs, so those who might benefit understand and take the opportunities CLASS offers. Additionally, Mauws looks forward to building the relationship between CLASS and its clients, as well as the community as a whole.
“We hope to offer some in-person classes this fall,” Mauws commented.
Due to COVID-19, CLASS had to shut its doors in the spring, and while some courses were able to be moved online, some were cancelled. However, Mauws plans to evaluate how much space there is for in-person classrooms and has high hopes that CLASS clients will be able to return soon.
