Restoration of Geyer Hall at North Central Missouri College is expected to be done in two different phases—perhaps encompassing several years. North Central President Neil Nuttall last evening told trustees he will have plans to present and cost estimates this spring.

College representatives have been meeting with architects in an effort to prepare plans in the
anticipation that local fund-raising will be supplemented by capital outlay funds that the
legislature might authorize for community college projects. Doctor Nuttall expects Geyer Hall
to have a high score when Missouri department of higher education prioritizes projects for
what he called “deferred maintenance” funding.

To that extent, Doctor Nuttall said the first phase includes heating, cooling, ventilation electrical, plumbing, and windows for Geyer Hall. It also could possibly include for what's
called a “learning commons”, the academic reinforcement center (ARC) and college library.

The second phase, according to Doctor Nuttall, would propose a building south of Geyer Hall that could accommodate the testing center and student support services programs.

Architect Jeremy Proctor of St. Joseph is expected to present information about Geyer Hall restoration at a meeting of the N-C-M-C Foundation.

Director of the Foundation, Teresa Cross, reported 312 thousand, 715 dollars has been pledged or donated for scholarships with the Gifts in Action campaign. Adding in funds from the Bosley estate will raise the total to about the two million dollar goal; then its on to the next
goal which Mrs. Cross stated will be three million dollars for student scholarships.

On behalf of Steve Maxey, Mrs. Cross announced the Holiday Hoops committee is presenting sportsmanship awards to the Green City boys and St. Joseph Lafayette girls.

The tenth annual holiday hoops may have 100 high school teams for 12 days of basketball. Contracts have been returned so far from 18 schools and 36 teams. Mrs. Cross reported North Central will host high school basketball recognition banquets March 26th and April 4th as well as the Lions Clubs all-star basketball games June 7th.

In action items, Trustees accepted the fiscal year 2013 college audit. Chief Financial Officer Tyson Otto called it a clean audit with no major concerns. He then discussed the financial performance showing assets up two percent; net worth increasing three point six percent; and the colleges' “cash on hand” is up five percent when compared with a year ago.

Trustees approved purchasing 60 thousand dollars worth of testing materials for the nursing program students at Trenton, Bethany, and Maryville. The cost is borne by allied health students through additional fees. A change was made to allow classified staff to use
sick leave in one hour increments.

Among personnel, Virginia Slaughter of Bethany was hired as a part-time clinical instructor with the level one nursing program at Trenton. Trustees accepted the retirement, after 18 years, by Head Start instructor at Hamilton, Velma Wallace. Emily Miller, a Gallatin graduate, was hired to replace her. She has four years experience with pre-school age children.

Doctor Nuttall told of his participation as legislative representative with the Missouri Community College Association and with the local delegation for Great Northwest Day at the
state capitol in Jefferson City. Vice President James Gardner will be in Maryville next week
working on developing a unique agreement allowing some of the freshman students living on
the Northwest campus to take N-C-M-C classes and be enrolled as North Central students.
