My name is Kevin McClain, and I am the Director of Academic Excellence within the Student Success Center. I started my journey at Woodland Community College in July 2023. Prior to working at Woodland Community College, I served in various roles in higher education in Louisiana, Nebraska, and North Carolina. I enjoy working with students and helping them grow into successful scholars. My goal at Woodland Community College is to help students navigate academic success so they can earn their associate’s degree, certificate, or transfer to a four-year institution.
I am the Student Success Specialist for the Lake County Campus of Woodland Community College. I began my career by returning to school in 2001, I have several business degrees; also, I have a BS in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Learning Disabilities. I also have a Master’s Degree in Education with a minor in Disabilities Studies. I work at the Lake County campus first as a student worker from 2003-2006, then as a permanent staff since 2006. I also teach the LEARN Classes, for basic skills and the CWEE (Cooperative Work Experience). My goal is to help students reach their goals. I am blessed to have an amazing job and working with a wonderful team.
