24 Oct Member Spotlight- Hutchinson Community College-McPherson Campus
Always a learning opportunity at the Chamber coffee’s. We discovered that Hutchinson Community College literally has something for everyone. HCC offers course studies for high school students interested in getting a head start on their college classes or for those taking advantage of the career and technical programs available because of Senate Bill 155. If you haven’t heard, Senate Bill 155 is an incentive where high school students can receive tuition reimbursement for certain programs and receive industry-recognized certifications that can result in high-demand occupations in Kansas. Find out more online at http://www.hutchcc.edu/sb155 stop by 2208 N. Main, or call 620-245-0202. The McPherson Campus also offers lessons to increase basic skills, a GED Test and classes for those who are underprepared for college.
