Brad Kendrex, executive vice president for administration and operations at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and interim vice president for administrative services at Mesa Community College joins NACUBO senior director, government affairs Megan Schneider to discuss the impact of COVID-19 legislative support on community colleges.
