The Schoolcraft College Board of Trustees swore in longtime Livonia resident Candy Little as its newest member on April 27, 2023. Little fills the vacancy created by Joan Gebhardt.
Little has been a committed and active member of the Livonia community for 16 years. She has dedicated her time to various local efforts, including serving on the PTA community for Coolidge Elementary and sitting on various committees for the Livonia Public School District.
“Working with the PTA and other committees as my daughter progressed through Livonia schools instilled in me the importance of supporting local education,” said Little. “I’m so excited to again lend my passion for students and local communities as part of the Schoolcraft team. I have followed the college’s work to expand opportunities for all students and am thrilled to now be a part of the team to do even more for this community.”
Little graduated from Wayne State University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Chemistry. She then immersed herself in the pharmaceutical industry, holding positions at several pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations. She is currently a Senior Clinical Research Specialist and Institution Lead Clinical Research Associate at Merck.
In addition to her pharmaceutical and educational background, Little has served on the Livonia Water and Sewer Board since December 2020. She and her daughter have been residents of Livonia for 16 years.
