Doctor James Gardner will conclude 11 years with NCMC when he retires effective June 30th. Currently, he is Vice President of Instruction and Student Services; and for a period of time, served as Interim President prior to the hiring of the current president, Doctor Neil Nuttall.

Doctor Gardner stated it has been a pleasure working with college trustees and all of the staff—calling them great people who do fantastic work. Doctor Gardner was praised for his contributions to N-C-M-C.

In other personnel action, Jewell Harris has resigned from the nursing faculty effective in late January in order to accept a position with another employer. Two internal transfers were approved. Sue Nichols will be a nine month, full time nursing instructor with the MoHealthWINS grant program. Stephanie Blaine will replace her as the Maryville site coordinator.

Approval was given to purchase computer servers, to replace existing equipment, at a cost of over 21 thousand dollars (from C-D-W-G of Illinois). The board accepted the annual Head Start policy council by-laws and child selection criteria. And it held the first reading on a policy change for classified staff of the college to use sick leave in hourly increments.

Doctor Nuttall reported on a meeting in which he represented community colleges regarding proposed projects that could be funded with state-wide capital improvement bonds IF the issue makes it through the next legislative session.

The top priority for North Central is restoration of Geyer Hall. Other priorities at NCMC include a student services building and further development of the Barton Farm Campus. He noted architects continue working on two scenarios for a learning commons inside Geyer Hall with proposals to be presented in the spring.

Whitney Trump gave a report on the growth N-C-M-C has experienced with on-line classes. It was noted there has been a 13 percent increase in credit hours and 12 percent increase in the un-duplicated head count when comparing the fall semester with 2012. Her report stated 519 for the head count, 400 of them taking college-level dual-credit classes at some 39 different high schools.

The North Central Dean of Instruction, Jamie Hooyman informed trustees about a meeting with officials at State Fair Community College in Sedalia regarding potential development of an agreement with North Central involving the wind energy technician program. State Fair is described as working in the field of renewable energy through three areas: bio-mass, solar, and wind.
