"I want to ensure that St. Louis Community College’s programs and services remain accessible and affordable for all students," Carlock said.  "At the same time, we must also continue to demonstrate to taxpayers that the funds received support programs and services that meet the changing needs of the community."

Carlock has served as an accreditation site visitor in the allied health fields, participating in more than 115 on-site visits to community colleges, hospitals and university programs throughout the United States.
