Rotary Club of Kirksville-Thousand Hills
19 September 2019
PROGRAM: Moberly Area Community College:
Dee Coleman
Dee is the Director at the Kirksville MACC campus. She said that enrollment at the Kirksville campus is about 255 students, which is up 13%. The entire enrollment across all campuses of MACC is around 5,600. She said that students can earn an AA degree through MACC through online or on campus classes. Many of the students enrolled in MACC start with a general studies program to explore options and get complete the core curriculum courses. The state has implemented the CORE 42 program that assures core courses taken at any state institution will transfer in to any other state school. MACC also works with students who are planning to transfer to enroll in courses that will count towards the transfer school’s program.
Dee talked about the many programs that are offered either at the Kirksville campus or online, and said that many programs can be completed without leaving town. She said they are always looking for ways to enhance the curriculum and add programs that the community is in need of. They plan to add a wind technician program soon.
We ordered so many shirts that the Stitching Post gave us a better deal than we we quoted on the price.  Everyone will save $2 on the cost of their T-shirt.  If you have not paid yet, please pay Jon P. at your earliest convenience.
Thanks to Jeff and Christine and everyone that helped out with team HOLY SMOKE's debut in the North Star BBQ competition.
