The Hutchinson Community College Board of Trustees opened its March meeting by welcoming its newest member, Mo Penny. Mr. Penny was elected to replace Darrell Pankratz, who recently retired from the Board. With the addition of Mr. Penny, all seven members of the Board of Trustees have the distinction of being graduates of HutchCC.
The Board also met the 13 student-athletes from its men’s and women’s track and field teams that qualified for the recent NJCAA national indoor championships.
In addition, the Board conducted several business items, including a report on the College’s ongoing Strategic Planning initiatives and an update on the Student Dining Facility Expansion Project. After some early delays, the project is progressing well with hopeful completion early in the fall semester.
Dr. Tricia Paramore, chair of the Natural Sciences and Mathematics department, reported HutchCC recently hosted the Boy Scout Merit Badge College at which more than 400 scouts earned over 1,000 merit badges.
The next meeting of the board will be on Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m. in the Shears Technology Center Justice Theater. The public is invited to attend.
