SCCC/ATS Board Of Trustees Meet
12/10/2009

The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Board of Trustees met Tuesday, December 8, for its regular board meeting to discuss physical plant improvements, the Strategic Plan and statewide funding.

Tommy Williams, dean of administrative services, updated the board on the physical plant improvements.

Future projects include plumbing and restroom revitalization at the area technical school. Projects that are under way include parking lot, welding exhaust, emergency lighting and remodeling at the area technical school, sidewalk repairs at the Colvin Adult Learning Center and Epworth Allied Health Education Center and fire alarm upgrades on the main campus and technical school.

Williams also told the board that tax credits are still in affect for this year at the 54 percent level.

Dr. Duane Dunn, SCCC/ATS president, presented the latest draft of the Strategic Plan that prioritizes objectives of the plan. The components of the plan include Creating Awareness, Workforce Development, Student Learning, Employee Development, Diversity and Technology.
