FSCC has BIG NEWS

Fort Scott Community College is pleased to announce a plan to utilize federal funding to assist in paying student fees for fall 2021 through summer 2022.
Federal funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) will be utilized during the next academic year to pay general fees for all students. FSCC believes the plan will save students nearly two million dollars for the next academic year.

To take advantage of the opportunity to attend FSCC without paying general fees, visit the Fort Scott website at fortscott.edu to apply and enroll today. Please contact the admissions office at admissions@fortscott.edu with any questions.
Osawatomie is being invaded by.... Flamingos!

Osawatomie Schools
Card Drive

The past year has been a challenging one for many - especially for those in our School District. If you are able, please take a few moments to help with the current card drive that is being organized to show appreciation for our local school staff. The Osawatomie Community is being encouraged to write or make a "thank you" card for an individual at one of our local schools. There are 5 designated drop off locations in town. The deadline is April 9th.
To learn more, see here.

Miami County Medical Center (MCMC) is partnering with other community health providers to update the Miami and Linn Counties Community Health Needs Assessment. The goal of this assessment update is to understand progress in addressing health needs cited in the 2015 and 2018 CHNA reports and to collect up-to-date community health perceptions.  
 
VVV Consultants LLC, an independent healthcare consulting firm from Olathe, KS, has been retained to conduct this countywide research. All responses will be confidential.
 
To gather community feedback, a short and confidential online survey has been developed. Please use the link below to participate and provide valuable feedback for this assessment.
