TitleIII

Kristy Trowbridge, Title III Administrative Assistant

MH900387036The fall semester for Lamar Community College has begun, and Title III has introduced four new courses to the Renewable Energy Program: CAR 123 Roof Framing, CAR 125 Roofing Materials and Methods, ENY 120 Solar Thermal System Install, and WTG 110 Power and Control Systems. Not only are we introducing these new courses, but new instructors who are bringing innovated projects and course materials to our program.

Title III would like to welcome Luke Richard and Jesse Stapleton to Lamar Community College. Luke Richards will be teaching Roof Framing and Roofing Materials & Methods. Jesse Stapleton will be teaching Control Systems and Intro to Wind Energy and Power. Both bring firsthand knowledge about renewable energy careers

One new project that the CAR students will be participating in is constructing a new pavilion for the City of Lamar’s baseball fields. This will not only help give our students hands on project, but it also provides Lamar Community College a way to give back to the city. Included in the project will be the ENY course Intro to Energy Tech and Building Energy Audit Tech. Thermal System Install students  will be designing a solar light for the pavilion.

The pavilion project will continue until   there are four such pavilions surrounding the baseball field. The need for this type of hands on project is important. Although in class discussions are important, Renewable Energy careers require future employees to be able to perform such projects.

Title III also welcomes back instructor Doug Cash and John Spano. Doug Cash will continue instructing our welding courses, and John Spano returns to the ENY courses. The Title III department is busy ordering supplies, working with the enrolled students, and preparing for the spring semester. We are excited at the progress of our courses and are looking forward to the future.
