ILCC Trustees Meet

Estherville, IA (KICD)–The Iowa Lakes Community College Board of Trustees met on Tuesday.

The board learned about a grant which links area high school students with local business representatives in an effort to educate the students about career opportunities. The Intermediary Network Grant has been dedicated to all 15 community colleges in Iowa.

Intermediary Connections Coordinator Molly Bates noted “One of the most successful events so far included partnering with the Sustainable Energy Resources and Technologies programs and hosting a hands-on learning day in Estherville.” She says they “plan to expand this event and offer it on a larger scale to the rest of the high schools in the area.

In other business, the Trustees reviewed a list of college employees who have requested participation in the voluntary early retirement package. A total of four faculty and staff applied and were approved for early retirement by the Trustees.
