Trinity College

Colleges, universities partner for 'QC Colleges' campaign

“We all share the common interest of making this community the best it can be for all of our citizens,” said Tracy Poelvoorde, chancellor for Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences, Rock Island. “Our local institutions of higher education are certainly instrumental in that effort.”

She said that presidents of Quad-City colleges and universities meet quarterly to talk about how they can collaborate. “We know each other as friends in a collegial relationship,” she said.

Poelvoorde is among the seven who will appear on the billboards. Gomez, too, will be featured.
