Dr. LeRoy & Carole Salowich
Dr. LeRoy Salowich is a veteran with eight years of military service. He is a charter faculty member of Oakland Community College. He developed, directed, coordinated and taught the Medical Laboratory Program. The program had worldwide recognition. The program accepted the education and training that military veterans acquired during their time of active duty. The acceptance of the veteran’s military training allowed the veterans to become registered technicians without repeating the courses they took during their active duty training. Dr. Salowich retired in 2000 after 35 years of service with OCC.
