Funds from the enhancement grant will be used for the purchases. Nearly 134
thousand dollars will be spent with O-M Office Supply of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
for computer equipment to replace existing equipment. It was the lowest of six bids.

Additional simulation equipment for the allied health program was purchased for ten
thousand, 724 dollars from Laerdal Medical Company. (NursingAnne & Simpad system)
Hired as a part-time instructor for health information or health data management
on the Trenton campus was a Kirksville resident: Gayla Kimmel. A Brookfield resident,
David Johnson, was hired as clay target shooting instructor. Both begin in January.

The current rental agreement between N-C-M-C and Workforce Development was
amended to lower rent for Layson Hall, downtown, to one thousand dollars a month.

Budget reductions were cited as the reason lower rent was requested.

Trustees with terms expiring next April are Doctor John Holcomb and Steve
Busch. The filing period will be open December 17th through the 23rd as well as from
January 2nd through the 21st. Candidates can file for a six year term with the Secretary of
the Board, Vicki Weaver, at the Frey administrative center during normal office hours.

The spring election for North Central Missouri College trustees is held every two
years. April 8th is the date for the election.


Among reports, Jason Helton updated the first year of MoManufacturingWINS
which is federally funded program for a consortium of community colleges—including
876 thousand dollars to North Central. Helton said there are 17 students in the first
semester for the manufacturing skills and industrial maintenance skills certificates.

He expects a class in welding skills to get state-approval with a summer 2014 start.
Doctor Neil Nuttall said St. Luke's College of Allied Health Science is working
with Wright Memorial Hospital and Hedrick Medical Center to offer what he called
incentives for nurses to pursue additional educational degrees. (associates to bachelor /
bachelors to masters / masters to doctorate) He noted I-T-V classrooms are to be used at
Cross Hall in Trenton and Grand River Tech in Chillicothe beginning next August.

Doctor Nuttall again discussed concerns expressed to the Department of Elementary and
Secondary Education regarding changing testing standards for future teachers.

Doctor Nuttall stated the first random drug tests among NCMC athletes produced
negative results. He complimented the Wright Memorial lab for their assistance.

Tyson Otto stated a new auditor has completed work with no major concerns.

Teresa Cross said a sixth named scholarship will be announced soon that any
student can apply for. The college foundation gifts in action campaign has 289 thousand
dollars, plus the one point two million from the Franklin and Frederick Bosley estate
toward the initial goal of having two million dollars worth of scholarships.

Trustees also met in executive session for personnel, real estate, and legal.
