Dr. Wee to Speak at Maquoketa Valley Awards Event

The Maquoketa Valley Dollars for Scholars is pleased to announce that Dr. Liang Wee, President of Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC), will be among the guests at the Maquoketa Valley Dollars for Scholars (MVDFS) Awards Event this Sunday, May 7th, at 3 pm in Delhi. Dr. Wee will have the honor of presenting two individual scholarships from the Maquoketa Valley Dollars for Scholars General Fund to the selected seniors who will be furthering their education after high school.  MVDFS Board President Keith Kramer stated, "We would like to thank Dr. Wee for his outstanding service to our communities and for presenting scholarships on our behalf. We look forward to a wonderful afternoon honoring the academic achievements of the students who will go on to pursue their dreams and goals at a college of their choice."  

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 now as president of Northeast Iowa Community College. 

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. 

Dr. Wee is a passionate and dedicated advocate for community vitality and economic development through education.
