Increased funding will be critical to our success." The council is a coalition of business and industry leaders that supports vocational and technical education programs in the Detroit area. "Mr. Farmer's background as a former teacher and his position in the business community make him ideal for leading the council during the next three years," said Dr. Beatrice Thomas, executive director of the council.
