Moving forward by leaps and bounds….
9News Health Fair
Christina Bethea, Administrative Assistant Nursing and CTE Programs
“Students from Lamar area schools recently attended the 9News Health Fair put on by the Nurses Department of the Lamar High School (LHS). The fair was held Thu. Feb. 7 in the gymnasium at LHS. The booths at the fair were operated by LHS student volunteers from grades 9-12 and 30 Lamar Community College (LCC) nursing students. The LCC nursing students operated three booths during the fair as part of the clinical training phase of pediatric care classes. Their instructor Kathy Henderson helped the nursing students during the fair. High Plains Community Health Center, Prowers Medical Center, Lamar Light and Power, Wild West Athletics of Lamar and the Lamar Fire Department were among the numerous other organizations that developed booths for the fair”
College Goal Sunday
Laurie Larrick, MA, Financial Aid Coordinator
College Goal Sunday was held on February 10, 2013 in the Betz Building. This was the first time LCC has been a host site for this statewide event. Overall our first time participating in CGA went great! We helped 16 students fill out FAFSAs for summer 2013 and school year 13-14 and there were 36 people overall who attended the event. Not bad for our first annual event! I have attached some pictures from the event and they are on our Facebook and Twitter accounts as well. A big thanks to the volunteers from the day who gave up some of their Sunday afternoon to help:
Phi Theta Kappa members: Shealynn McCracken and Tim Wheaton
We were also able to conduct a scholarship drawing for four $250 scholarships good for books, tuition or fees for Fall 2013. The scholarships winners were: James Sorrell (LCC), Heidi Carty (La Junta), Monica Gaitonde (Lamar High School) and Kolleen Camacho (Granada High School).
