"The past 12 years working here at McCook Community College have been wonderful because of the people -- the faculty and staff at MCC as well as the extraordinary support from the community of McCook," Tubbs told the faculty and staff.
"I certainly want to express my appreciation and thank-you to Dr. (Michael) Chipps and the Board of Governors for the opportunity to serve here. I could not have had a better capstone to my professional career than to serve as the CEO of McCook Community College. I think we are leaving the college in a good place with good people who will carry it forward into the future. "
In his letter of resignation to Dr. Michael Chipps, President of Mid-Plains Community College, Dr. Tubbs indicated that he has been working in academia for 35 years and he was looking forward to travel, his hobbies, volunteer work and -- of course -- baseball.
In his comments to the MCC employees, Dr. Chipps said, "Dr. Tubbs definitely will leave an unquestionable positive imprint on McCook Community College. The facilities are in remarkable shape, enrollments have been strong over the years, the Accelerated Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic, Graphic Design, and Welding programs, and facilities like the Center For Applied Science and Technology are all attributed to his leadership and tenure.
"One of Dr. Tubbs' crowning achievements will soon be realized in the completion of the McCook Community College Events Center, which is a remarkable and outstanding accomplishment.
"The College has been blessed to have Dr. Tubbs for more than a decade of outstanding senior leadership."
