Faculty and Staff Members Recognized...

Congratulations are in order for Dr. Rain Nielsen and Michelle Callender for graduating as fellows of the second Ohio Leadership Academy for Student Success, organized by the Ohio Association of Community Colleges. The academy is the first of its kind in the nation to gather mid-level administrators, faculty, and staff for a year of training, exchanging ideas and immersion in how to promote student success. 

Susan Armstrong, Director of our Adult Opportunity Center, recently participated in Leadership Adams as the SSCC representative.

Congratulations, Susan!

The Droids We Are Looking For...

Dr. Josh Montgomery has developed a coding and electronics class for students in grades 6-12 that will use 20 miniaturized Star Wars droid heads as avenues for computer science education. The class, which will have the same curriculum as the classes Josh and some of his students recently taught at a Star Wars gathering in California, will be held July 25-26 on Central Campus.
