Join us for the YP Monthly Luncheon featuring guest speaker Dr. Wee, President of Northeast Iowa Community College, presenting on Leading with a Positive Influence.
Dr. 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, becoming the first in his family to go to college. He has been an educator for almost 30 years, first serving in a faculty role at the University of Arizona and Luther College (Decorah, Iowa), then in administrative roles at Luther College and Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC), and as president of NICC since 2011.
Wee straddles two cultures, sometimes successfully and other times poorly. 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 which impacts his personal and professional journey.
