Today's guest on WMUK's WestSouthwest news and public affairs show is Dr. L. Marshall Washington, the new president of Kalamazoo Valley Community College. There’s only been three presidents since the college was founded in 1966. Washington makes the third. He started July 1, replacing Marilyn Schlack, who guided KVCC through tremendous expansion during her 35-year tenure. Washington was previously president of New River Community and Technical College in West Virginia.

It was a year ago this October that the near half-century-old Family Health Center in Kalamazoo named its main headquarters building after local humanitarian Moses Walker. He was pivotal in starting the center to help those with limited means get medical care. We interviewed him about his many contributions to the community at the time of the naming ceremony. Today's WestSouthwest is an encore presentation of that interview with WMUK Local Morning Edition Host Earlene McMichael. It originally aired Nov. 17, 2017. (Click on triangle to hear it.)
