Doris & George Mosher

George and Doris Mosher were instrumental in founding and creating Oakland Community College in 1964.

George was elected Chairman of the first Board of Trustees and served as Chairman during the formative years of the College. He has long been considered the founding father of OCC. The first meetings of the Board of Trustees were held in the Mosher home in Birmingham.

Doris led the first successful millage campaign, which created the College in 1964. She also served several terms as Chair of the OCC Foundation.

The Moshers established the Doris and George Mosher Endowed Scholarship in 2000 to financially assist the students of OCC and thus help them to enjoy the benefits of Oakland Community College.
