Preston Pulliams, district president for Portland Community College, delivered a “Friday Forum” speech before a lunchtime crowd last week at the City Club of Portland.

Pulliams spoke to an estimated 80 people in the room and his comments were broadcast Friday evening at KOPB radio and various cable television channels.

The speech focused on the president’s own history; his professional journey to PCC; the current recession; and pathways to providing access to affordable higher education for everyone.

The City Club of Portland was formed in 1916 and has operated ever since as the state’s premiere forum for political and social debate.
