Dr. Neil Nuttall discussed that in the past our scholarships had not been utilized to the fullest, but now, a committee has been formed and is working with Bruce Constant to see how to better market and use these scholarship funds. It was noted that 85% of our students are Pell Grant recipients and that preparations need to be made in the scholarship area to help offset should Pell grants be decreased in the future.

It was explained that NCMC offers AA transfer degree and AAS degree. The AAS degree prepares students to go directly into the work field. Two grants are being established, the MO Health Wins Grant and the MO Manufacturing Grant. Both will help community colleges get the “mid skilled workers” out into the workforce. The current industry is in need of increased skilled workers and community colleges such as NCMC are working on getting “Work Keys” for students. These “Work Keys” test skill levels in math, language, communication arts, and soft skills so that an employer can look at a student and tell them what skill level they are looking for in an employee. North Central Missouri College is the regional contact that has been assigned to help area counties implement this “Work Keys’ program.

This program is also considering credit for military and or work experience with the focus on getting qualified people into the workforce quickly.

Dr. Nuttall thanked the Foundation Board for their continued support of North Central Missouri College and the students. He expressed his excitement for the upcoming Scholarship Campaign and the Geyer renovation campaign after that.
Phil Hamilton commented that he had been a scholarship recipient in 1976 from a scholarship given to him by the Church Women United and presented by Vera Cross. He used this as an example of how he was helped by the people in this community and how the Foundation can follow this example and help future students.

A motion was made by Gary Black to adjourn the meeting. Bill Bear seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved. The meeting adjourned at 7:00 p.m.
