    Lisa Malleck

    Lisa Malleck

    Lisa spent more than 15 years toiling in bars and restaurants. After permanently relocating to Colorado Springs with her significant other in July 2016, she decided it was her time to seek something more suited to her strengths and desire – helping people! Pueblo Community College was her first choice in returning to school for many reasons; Pueblo is home to a large part of her support system, PCC’s great affordability, and quality of education. PCC also offers her chosen program, Radiologic Technology, which she will be applying to in Spring 2019.

    As a new Student Ambassador, Lisa is excited to help both new and existing students through the process of pursuing their own dreams!

    Veronica Moffitt

    Veronica Moffitt 

    Veronica was born and raised in Colorado and was homeschooled her whole life until she started college at an early age of 16. With this, she has seen the value of education and understands the importance of giving others the same opportunities PCC has given her. She understands that everyone learns differently and thinks PCC understands that too. She is currently earning an Associates in Studio Art and hopes to transfer to continue her education in art. “One person can affect your experience and education path so much; I hope I can be a person who makes that experience awesome.” With a great love for art and different forms of expression, her goal is to support others in their journeys for success.
