Janice Chapman will be retiring from GRCC at the end of fall semester. Janice has worked for GRCC for 9 ½ years as an Assistant Professor in the English Department and prior to this worked at an Alternative High School in Wyoming.
Janice taught developmental English and currently is teaching Integrated Reading and Writing. When asked about her favorite memory at GRCC, Janice said “I have enjoyed reconnecting with some of the students I taught from the Wyoming School District. I have also enjoyed being at the frontlines, acting as a bridge to help students that are underprepared for college. I would say this has been my calling.”
In retirement, Janice is going to enjoy more of her role as Mimi-Jan to 6 amazing little Chapmans. Janice looks forward to having more time for her art and The Arts. Janice and her husband, Don, plan to hike and camp- immersing themselves in the National Parks. They want to play hard while they are healthy. They plan to continue managing their rental properties and if they get bored might flip a few houses.
We wish you all the best in your retirement, Janice. Please stay in touch! Thank you for all that you did for GRCC and our students. You have really made difference in the lives of many. Enjoy retirement!

GRCC Lakeshore students donated their time and energy last week at the Midtown Center in Holland. Jason Stevens, Phil Flipse, Esmeralda Hernandez, and La’teju Simmons met on December 4 to help pack hygiene kits for students at Narrow Gate, a residential facility for drug rehabilitation.
The hygiene kits were distributed to Narrow Gate students on December 7 in Marcellus, Michigan.
Kudos to both our students and also event organizer Gwen Rubio, Adult Ed and ESL instructor for the Zeeland/Holland Adult Education Program.
