Plenty of successful people attended community college.
The list includes George Lucas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman. The first woman to command a shuttle mission, Eileen Collins, started her rise in community college and so did Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the first Hispanic woman elected to Congress.
Among them is Dennis Bailey-Fougnier, who this month became the seventh president of Blue Mountain Community College.
