Percival worked for the Kalamazoo Regional Educational Service Agency at Michigan Works! from 1987-2004, serving as supervisor beginning in 1993. She served on the Colon School Board from 1984 to 1988. Other activities have included being a Colon Township Trustee for 23 years, Colon Village Council since 2000, Economic Development Board since 1997, Community Action Board of South Central Michigan since 2007 (currently Secretary), Walk for Warmth since 1990 and member of the Colon Caring Food Kitchen Board.
Percival said she is pleased to serve on the Board of Trustees at Glen Oaks, “This College is such a valuable resource for the county. I think people are realizing the value of Glen Oaks more as they see the increasing cost of higher education.”
