Snow College will receive a $97,999 grant to facilitate the development of the Rural Business Outreach Program. The goal: to more effectively extend services into all regions within the six-county area. A shout out goes to Alan Christensen for his help in developing the proposal.
Over the summer, CTE Division winners of the state competitions in SkillsUSA, HOSA, and PBL represented Snow College at their respective national competitions. Way to go, students and advisors!
They won the national championship in 1985, and now 25 years later, they are in the spotlight again. The NJCAA Football Hall of Fame released their inductees of the 2010 Class, and former Badgers are on the list.

Brad Taggart was thanked at Ephraim Elementary's Back-to School Night for the long hours he spent creating a new Readasaurus, the school's mascot, which is prominently displayed in the lobby of the new school.
Thanks for sharing your talents with others, Adam and Brad!
Helping students through financial issues is never easy, especially if it means being the bearer of bad news. I had an opportunity to be a part of one of what I sure were hundreds of conversations that Norma Shore had with students the first week of school. Norma was compassionate yet firm and honest in helping this student. Norma's professionalism, demeanor and personal skills made the situation much easier than it could have been. I always had some idea of what Norma does, but to see her in action was so impressive. She is an amazing asset to this college and, most of all, the students.
Shawn Lindow is one of the kindest, most responsive colleagues I've worked with during my career. It doesn't matter what the request might be, Shawn is willing to find a solution and help however he can. I appreciate his great customer service skills.
(Thanks to those of you who submitted these "caught ya" recognitions. Keep sending

With the intent of helping us better know and understand what our fellow employees do every day, informal open-house-style events are being scheduled. President Wyatt will buy the refreshments if you're willing to "show your stuff." Please let Marci know if your department is interested in hosting one.
