Dr. Patricia Koeze has spent her career helping children achieve success in the public school system. She holds a doctoral degree in educational leadership, and she's put her education to use throughout Michigan and beyond. She was also a member of the Holland Chamber of Commerce, which some people might find surprising. Why should someone who is involved with teaching children help the business community succeed? The answer is clear, Dr. Patricia Koeze says. When businesses succeed, there are more opportunities for children to get jobs when they have completed their education. And, businesses that thrive are more likely to invest in education. Dr. Patricia Koeze will continue to fight for her students by participating in these sorts of forums. She knows they work, and she'll do what it takes to help students succeed.
