Jason Waters has seen the value of Elizabethtown Community and Technical College through his own family members. Just as Waters was starting at a four-year university, the factory where his father, Don Waters, had worked for over 25 years closed and he was able to attain an associate degree and train for a new career at ECTC. His father-in-law, John DuPlessis Jr., is also an ECTC alumni. While the college holds meaningful history, it’s what the future holds that led Waters to join the ECTC Foundation Board.
“This is an opportunity to improve our community and have a tremendous impact,” he said. “It’s about growth. ECTC allows our residents to have more opportunity here at home, and it allows our community to grow. Education is changing and we need to have broad community support for the college to remain flexible and take advantage of new opportunities.”
Waters serves clients as a financial planner and personal planning division leader, and plays a senior leadership role at ARGI. He has been with the firm since 2006 and been involved in the organization’s tremendous growth. Committed to giving back to the community, in the past he has served as a board member for the MS Society Board and WaterStep, a non-profit dedicated to clean water initiatives. Currently, Waters is also a board member for ARGI.
He and his wife, Dr. Elizabeth DuPlessis Waters, and two sons, Henry and Hudson, live in Elizabethtown.
