I feel we are doing a very good job at the present time. In the four years I have served I have had no one complain about this issue to me.
Yes I believe we are. The college provides educational opportunities that would not be available to a lot of our citizens. We provide specialized certificate programs that train a lot of workers for local businesses.
Absolutely. Just take one area for example, the nursing program. If not for the students who are educated in that program our area medical facilities would be short staffed even more than they are now. Ask any medical facility how many of their employees have come through BCC.
