KCC in the news: Aug. 6, 2012

Most of the mentions of Kellogg Community College in online media this weekend were from the Battle Creek Enquirer, although Coldwater’s Daily Reporter did post a portion of the college’s most recent dean’s list, and last week Community College Times posted a nice article about the college’s VetSuccess on Campus program, which is scheduled to begin this fall.

From the Enquirer:

  • Kellogg Community College theatre instructor Brad Poer was quoted in an article posted on Friday about the benefits of offering theatre programs for youth. Among his insights in the article: “The arts are all about expanding everybody’s horizons and showing them that there’s more than what you grew up with and what you were surrounded by as to what’s cool or what’s pretty or what’s profound. And the more you reach out and try to expand upon what you already know, the more you grow as a person.” Well said.
  • On Friday the Enquirer also posted an update on the power outage that they say left about 1,300 people in the area without power that morning and closed Kellogg Community College’s North Avenue campus for the day. The article says the power outage was due to a problem at Consumers Energy’s Elm Street substation and that all customers had their power back by just after noon.
  • In their collection of Class Notes briefs posted on Saturday, the Enquirer included a mention of Kellogg Community College providing space on its North Avenue campus for Michigan State Police Community Service Trooper Kristi Angelo.
