Founder Story • Jim Miner


Jim always believed that “traditional education isn’t for everyone” and that Washington County needed a place that would promote experiential learning. When he heard of the initial conversations about creating a place to provide responsive educational opportunities that ultimately led to the founding of CCLC, he knew he could offer his skills in building design, construction, and maintenance. Since 2000, Jim has done just that and even served as CCLC’s first Board President.

When asked what excites him about CCLC entering its next 20 years, Jim said, “The thing that excites me most is the fact that the campus is complete and will be here for a good long time to support and advance programs for the people of Washington County and others worldwide.”
